On Friday 15th May, 2015, Manchester is going food crazy with the launch of the first ever Castlefield Food Festival at the Castlefield Bowl. The weekend event promises to showcase some of Manchester’s finest chefs, restaurants and street food traders in a celebration of all things food!
With over 10,000 visitors expected to attend, the Castlefield Food Festival will feature a World and Farmers’ Market selling delicious cuisines from around the globe and our own local producers, inspiring demonstrations from skilled chefs at the Demo Kitchen, tasty street food stalls and a wide range of live music to keep the party going.
The Food Festival runs from 15th to 17th May and offers an exciting mix of food and entertainment from its bustling 'hub' in Castlefield Bowl. For the foodies, highlights include ‘Champion of The North’ Robert Owen Brown, Manchester Confidential’s Mark Garner and Kate Goodman from TV’s “Food and Drink” programme showing off their skills in the Demo Kitchen, as well as a range of pop-up restaurants from some of the best known venues on the Manchester food scene including Dukes 92, Dimitris and Veeno. Visitors will also be able to learn how to make the perfect cocktail to accompany the delicious food!
To accompany the sumptuous range of foods on offer, the Castlefield Food Festival will host a full programme of entertainment across the weekend including “A Band Apart”, a Quentin Tarantino Tribute Band, and an evening of Spanish music brought to you by Festejar featuring “Break Latino” a funky Spanish crossover band to help you dance the night away.
Carol Middleton, Chair of The Castlefield Forum, said “We are really excited to be working in partnership with this new festival. We know how to put on a party and we are certain this will attract people into the area to join the thousands that already live here.”
She added “The Castlefield Bowl was made for events such as this and we look forward to building the Castlefield Food Festival into one of the biggest of its kind in the North West.”
The Castlefield Food Festival is free to attend and will feature entertainment for all the family. For more information visit the website: www.castlefieldfoodfestival.co.uk
