Alex wins competition to name new restaurant

May 2022


Year 7 student, Alex A has won a competition to name the town’s new tapas restaurant located in the Spanish Art Gallery. The restaurant will be called El Castillo.

The competition was organised by The Auckland Project and thanks to Alex’s winning entry, a group of his peers will now be visiting the art gallery to take part in a workshop as part of the grand prize. In addition to this, Alex’s family will receive a weekend pass for the Auckland Project attractions and a family meal at El Castillo restaurant which is in the Market Place.

Competition judges said, “As we have our own castle here in Bishop Auckland, Un Castillo de Comida (shortened to El Castillo) is a fantastic way of reminding us of one of our greatest treasures, whilst also giving it a Spanish twist! Plus, as Alex reminded us in his entry, “in a castle you would have great food”, which is definitely something we intend to serve in our restaurant. Well done Alex!”
