At the last minute Me&Yu has joined in the fun planned in Preston this weekend. There's two amazing linked events going on in the centre of Preston on the flagmarkets and it looks like it will be a fabulous festive celebration for anyone who wants to get in the Christmas Spirit.

The New Continental Pub in Preston is organising this fabulous 4 day Christmas Beer Festival - the tent is up, the kegs are ready and for a mere £2.50 entry you can enjoy all the fun. There's 100+ cask ales and real ciders, a lager, wine and spirit bar as well as speciality foods and a whole hog roast. As well as the food and drink - there is a host of musical treats to keep you entertained.

Across the road in the Old Post Office is Bazaar! A fabulous art and craft market with over 25 stalls of original products and gifts unique gifts that you just can't get on the high street. Me&Yu has a select range of products from cards and handmade gifts to our best selling tees and hoodies - and you can also pick up your FREE Christmas Card Flyer from us which can be re-used as a discount voucher for January. Only £1 entry or free if you've been to the Beer Festival.

FREE T-Shirts

I finally got time to print the t-shirts we're giving away if you spend over £30 (instore or online), believe it or not this is the first time we've had a t-shirt design with our name on it (I think) - only took 5 years.

Facebook Fanpage...

You may have seen recently that we set up not one but two Facebook Fanpages! Such is the nature of facebook - we set the first one up with the wrong name and then discovered we coudn't change it! (we're deleting the original one!) So please have a look, click LIKE and spread the word about Me&Yu to all your friends.
