On Wednesday 28th November BET celebrated the year and upcoming festive season with its members with an outdoor Christmas Celebration!

This years event took place in Collins Court which is an outdoor event space run by the Hobart City Council. It was a great event and an excellent opportunity to showcase what can be done in an unconventional space. A special thank you to Madi Peattie from Food + Beverage Collective for your support towards this event, everyone was blown away and thoroughly enjoyed the street eats food by the Food + Beverage Collective.
