After a five-year absence, Eat Drink Bristol Fashion is back for 2020.
And it’s going to be bigger than ever. See, with so many incredible local indie restaurants and businesses having opened in that time, it’s got even more to showcase, meaning it’s outgrown its previous site and will now take place in Castle Park on 2 and 3 May.
Two of the brains behind the event – chef-patron of Michelin-starred The Pony and Trap Josh Eggleton and Valley Fest founder Luke Hasell – have paired up with event production company Team Love to present the most impressive line-up to date. Castle Park will be transformed into a foodie paradise with a cooking demo stage, music bandstand, producers market and information stage that will host speakers and panel discussions.
As well as various street food vendors to tempt the masses, the Bristol Taste Tent will host the very best restaurants that the city has to offer with Glassboat, Clifton Lido, Little French, The Pony and Trap, The Pump House, Root and Woky Ko all serving up £5 taster dishes (and that’s just the Saturday line-up!).
Sunday will see Adelina Yard, Bravas, Bulrush, Paco Tapas, Seven Lucky Gods and Tare take over the kitchen to serve up signature plates. Don’t forget to pop into Little Loco too, a pop-up party venue with drinks, nibbles and dancing hosted by the Pasta Loco team.
If you’re after a more formal affair, the popular Banqueting Tent will make a return with guest chefs teaming up with Bristol’s best to pull out the stops for lucky punters. Confirmed chefs include Tom Kerridge, Tommy Banks, Jude Kereama, Tome Brown and Gareth Ward. Tickets (including limited numbers for the chefs’ table) are available now and are tipped to sell out fast.
