Footballing legend John Barnes to launch new menu

A tasty treat is in store for football fans as England and Liverpool football legend, John Barnes, is coming to Blackburn this Friday (26th April) to launch East Z East’s new season menu.

The restaurant, which opened in King George’s Hall last year after a £350,000 investment, is launching the new Punjabi based menu with a special event offer too! The evening, which will also feature a DJ and entertainment, offers diners a 20% discount on food for anyone who books in advance.

John Barnes, who was capped 79 times for England, may even perform his World Cup rap, that has become his signature since “World in Motion” hit the number one spot in the summer of 1990.

Father and son owners, Tahir and Waseen Hamid, said: “We’re very excited to welcome John to East Z East this Friday, to join in our exciting new menu launch.

“John will be around all evening meeting diners, signing shirts and hopefully performing his world-famous rap! With a live DJ set from 7pm and a special 20% discount offer for people who book in advance, we can’t wait to serve our new menu. Our new team have got some fabulous new dishes and tastes for everyone to try.

“It’s going to be a great evening and we’re inviting everyone to come along.”

Catherine Price, manager of Blackburn BID added: “The BID is thrilled that East Z East is at the heart of the Blackburn BID town centre area and we can’t wait to sample the new menu. Their investment in the town centre is part of a growing confidence in the town’s leisure offering and the exciting developments around King George’s Hall, as part of the Blakey Moor Townscape Heritage Project, is key to the success of the town’s growing evening economy.”

East Z East is based in King George’s Hall on Northgate, Blackburn, BB2 1AA and to book for the “New Menu Launch” this Friday you should call 01254 678 975. Only pre-booked diners will qualify for the 20% discount.
