"British" week in Wankdorf (stop sniggering at the back)

Seems as if there's a British promo going on in the Wankdorf centre, Bern this week. A few exhibity type things and a shop where you can pick up quintessentially British goods, such as Coleman's mustard, Branston pickle, Sharwood's curry pastes () and of course, a selection of British beers and ciders. They were just setting up today, but not sure for how long they're running it.

I was there last weekend also. I saw a bunch of British flags hanging all over the place, but saw no explanation and could figure out what it was all about. Where did you see the British food for sale? (Not that I want to buy any, just curious )

Downstairs, by the entrance to Coop. I presume there's some sort of Olympics/Jubilee connection of some sort.
