This week marks the start of Bristol Food Connections Festival (11-17 June), a week-long extravaganza celebrating some of the most fantastic – and delicious – food and drink businesses and projects from across the city.

 

This year the festival has taken on a new approach, moving from a traditional city-centre tents and marquees type vibe, to one that fully explores the whole of Bristol, bringing together cultures and communities through a series of events, created by the people of Bristol, for the people of Bristol.

 

We are over the moon to have played a part in the festival, helping to support the absolutely lovely (and they are seriously lovely) Food Connections team with messaging, communications strategy and promotion of the festival across national and local press over the last few months.

 

Now with the festival upon us, we asked our Jamie to pick out some of his favourite events, including some the Wonderfamily will be heading along to. You’re going to come as well, yeh?

  • Community Iftar – This is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the end of Ramadan, learn about different cultures and enjoy a gorgeous feast as well – what more could you want!?
  • Apple Pressing with the Cider Box – we’re totally going to see who can crush the most apples in the team and not just for the cider …
  • Food United: Carib-Asian Cookery Demo – I love a bit of spice and Caribbean food which makes this event a win-win!
  • FUTURE:FEAST – An opportunity to find out what food will be like 100 years from now. Think Star Trek meets Come Dine with Me, or Heston Blumenthal on acid…we’re there.
  • Recording of BBC Radio 4’s The Food Programme Debate – I love a good debate and this one looks set to be a cracker, discussing the future of our relationships with the restaurant. Plus, it’s with Grace Dent who is just the best.
