I hope you’re all enjoying the sun, I most definitely am!
So, now summer (seems) to have arrived with a scorching heat wave, you must be wondering what you can possibly do to make the most of this beautiful weather.
I know what I’ll be doing!
Manchester Eats is a new festival that is launching this year in Heaton Park. If you’re a fan of food and drink, or just having a great time, then this will be perfect for you. Described as a ‘brand new fine food family festival bringing the very latest in food trends and cuisine to Manchester’s Heaton Park’, it is sure to be a hit with the whole family.
With a number of different activities, such as celebrity chef demos from Macro Pierre-White, Britain’s Best Dish’s Ed Baines, Channel 4’s Matt Tebbutt and award-winning Manchester chef, Mary-Ellen McTague. Additionally, you’ll find a Chester petting zoo, and a chocolate masterclass from In Truffle We Trust, to name but a few. The day is sure to be packed full of fun with so many different things to do, watch, and of course eat. A perfect opportunity to chill with friends and enjoy the sunshine.
A few well known Manchester favourites will also be there, such as Cottonopolis and Manchester Gin (a gin that I absolutely adore, and especially love in this heat), to make the event even better than it already sounds.
Denise Harris, Events Director at Manchester Eats, commented that:
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be bringing Manchester Eats to Heaton Park. There will be a real mix of delicious food and drink on offer and visitors will also have the opportunity to see some of the most popular celebrity chefs in the country. It’s set to be a fantastic weekend of foodie fun, set in a stunning location, and I’m sure it will be a big hit with food lovers from across the region.’
With a live DJ set, lots of activities for kids and vegan/vegetarian cooking classes on offer, there is no better way to spend the first weekend of July. So grab a few of your friends and head down to Heaton Park the 7th-8th of July.
