Tickets are now on sale for the city-wide festival's events and feasts

Tickets for 70 Bristol Food Connections community events have been released. Head to the website to secure your spot at some awesome events, which will be taking place between 12 and 23 June in venues across the city. 
Plenty of familiar foodie faces have signed up to put on talks, demos and feasts – in fact, this year’s festival is shaping up to be the most exciting and diverse so far. 
The varied events on the growing programme range from an informative session at Bristol Spirit, where owner Sam Espensen will explore the world of alcohol and mental health, to a bread-making class by The Assembly Bakery, and a theatrical feast with cider parings at St Werbergh's City Farm.
Grace Ekall – who is hosting a Makossa-inspired Cameroonian feast – has spoken of her excitement at being included in the line-up. "For me, Bristol Food Connections is about celebrating individuals, communities and the diversity of the cultures in Bristol," she says. "It is a brilliant way to promote acceptance, explore delightful dishes and flavours from different parts of the world. It brings people together and inspires people to get cooking.”
Tickets are on sale now, and keep your eye on the website more events to be announced!
