Bristol Food Connections Festival
Bristol is playing host to a food festival unlike any other. From May 1 to 11, much of the city is joining forces to celebrate its independent spirit and vibrant food culture as more than 100 events take place across the entire city.
Spanning the entire city and aptly named Bristol Food Connections, the event will bring together the many vibrant food cultures and communities already thriving in Bristol and inspire visitors to celebrate and engage with them.
In collaboration with the BBC, Bristol City Council, Bristol University and other Bristol institutions the festival will educate and build on Bristol’s pioneering attitude to food. Events will be affordable and accessible to all with the emphasis on knowledge, participation and fun. From a large celebration in Millennium Square to Eat, Drink, Bristol Fashion in Queen Square, Bristol’s streets will be alive with the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of good food for the full 11 days.
The BBC Food and Farming Awards will also be held in the city for the first time during the event. The BBC will be hosting one of the main sites of the Food Connections Festival on the waterfront. Throughout the festival a wide range of BBC broadcast programmes and their stars will visit the site and there’ll be a host of hands on activities designed to inspire a deeper knowledge of food and its role in our lives, as well as lots of help with everyday cooking skills.
To apply for FREE tickets to be in the audience for BBC star chefs’ cooking demos, live BBC radio recordings or family friendly CBeebies and CBBC stage shows go to www.bbc.co.uk/showsandtours. Tickets are available until Sunday 13th April. If you miss the window, there will be un-ticketed events happening everyday as well.
