Ahh, summer in Bristol! (Credit: The_Real_Clem, via Twitter)
For those of you who aren’t already fanning yourself on a beach in Bodrum or Bude, here’s your latest guide to what tasty goings-on you can look forward to this month.
Bristol isn’t just about the Balloon Fiesta in August (although I do bloody love watching the balloons), there’s also a heap of festivals, pop-ups and new places for you to visit.
Slip on your flipfops and pack a cagoule, this is where you should be munching over the next four weeks…
July starts with a BBQ-style bang – it’s Grillstock!
Top of the day, fellow food fanatics and Bristol aficionados.
I’ve spent the past few weeks trawling through food listings, press releases and obscurely-located event pages (come on guys, if you’re going to go to the trouble of putting on a great event – tell people about it!) to inform you of the tasty things happening this month.
Take a deep breath, put on your drinking boots and suck your tummy in – July is going to be BUSY…

Ignore the wind and rain – June’s here, I promise!
Despite a bit of a dreary start to my favourite month (it’s my birthday month, and usually the beginning of BBQ season, woop), there are still plenty of food-tastic events to be excited about, whether you want to booze it up, learn a new skill or visit the latest restaurant.
Pack your cagoule and sun cream, it’s time to jump into June…
Welcome to manic May! Festival season is well upon us, with Foodies Festival, the Gin Festival and Vegfest all happening this month, as well as numerous beer festivals, pop-ups and street parties, phew!
Put on your stretchiest trousers and have your Berocca to hand – summer is here and it’s looking full on already….
The sun is back, and that can only mean one thing: al fresco drinking!
The daffodils are coating every grassy area of town from Castle Park to The Downs, and the temperature is steadily rising…so I think it’s safe to say that we can start looking forward to long days of sitting on quaysides after work with a cold beverage in hand. Hurrah!
Get your questionable summer shirts on and prepare to type up your ‘out of the office’ for the 4 day weekend – it’s time to hear what tasty things are happening in April…

The days are getting brighter and longer, and with it come more events and new launches, hurrah!
Between the joys of spring, the Six Nations, St Patrick’s Day and Mother’s Day, March is looking BUSY. Have a Sharpie at the ready next to your Filofax, here’s where you should be munching this month…
Funtime coocktails at the newly-opened Bristol Spirit
Calm yourselves, in the midst of this misty and chaotic start to the year, we also have lots of exciting events to look forward to.
It’s not quite time for Cargo 2 to open, or for the spring festivals, but there’s still plenty to get giddy about. Have your calendars at the ready – it’s time to make notes for February…
