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…
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…
Welcome to highlights of the year – in this bumper post I’ll be rounding up some of the biggest events, launches, trends and general food & drink happenings this year, with some highlights from various Bristol food fans dotted throughout too, because we all love a bit of nostalgia, don’t we?
Let me know what your highlights were this year on Twitter, using the hashtag #Bristolhighlights, and I’ll add them to this list as they come in 🙂
Without further ado, here’s the best of what we ate and drank in Bristol in 2016…
The pavement is crispy with leaves, and the air is frosty and smokey from bonfires – but it’s not time to hibernate yet, instead it’s time for bonfires, mulled beverages, autumnal feasts and, err, pizza festivals.
Chuck another log on the wood burner, it’s time to hear about what you’ll be doing this month…
Well, we’re post-Glastonbury,we have a new mayor, and everyone is quitting everything.
But fear not, there’s plenty to keep you in good spirits throughout July – just read on!
Here are the festivals, tasty events and new openings you can look forward to in the coming weeks…(and that’s in addition to the amazingness that is Upfest coming to the city at the end of the month, and Bristol Harbour Festival!)
Welcome to March! How excited are we all about the slow approach of spring?
I’m particularly excited about this month as we have some really great new places finally opening their doors (read on for more info) plus a plethora (yes, a plethora) of great dining events and boozy frolics for you to choose from.
Put on your cosiest socks and make sure you have a cuppa at the ready – here’s what you can look forward to this month…
From the arrival of several big national chains such as MEATliquor and Wahaca to reviews from some of the best-known food critics in the land (all heaping praise on excellent locals such Birch, Bellita and Flour & Ash), Bristol has really matured into arguably the UK’s most exciting location for new & independent food & drink businesses – hurrah!
I know that the sun has turned to drizzle and our sandals have switched to boots – but you seriously need to be excited about September.
Not only are all the comedy and music people returning from festivals to entertain us through autumn, but we’ve also got a fully-packed month of food events, beer festivals and general tasty hijinks – hurrah!
So put on your comfy socks and pour yourself a glass of your favourite tipple – here’s what you can look forward to in September…
Welcome to sunny and merry June! Bristol has finally shrugged off it’s winter clothes and is slowly warming up to the party spirit.
Did you all enjoy Eat Drink Bristol Fashion and Food Connections? How about the Gin Festival? Luckily the pace shows no sign of slowing in terms of exciting food and drink events, so tuck your napkin into your collar, ready your knives and forks, heeere’s June!
May has finally sprung! The tipis are up! The sun is shining! I can barely contain my excitement. We’ve got 2 bank holiday weekends within sight, lovely weather and a whole host of festivals to kick off the summer.
So without further ado, I reveal to you the wonders of May food and drink in Bristol…
Welcome to April! I’m feeling in the festival spirit already, but with good reason as you’ll see once you read through what’s coming up in the next few weeks.
We all know that Bristol comes alive when the sun gets its hat on, so it’s time to start clearing your weekends for all of the music, food and arts festivals which will be arriving in the city in the next few months. But before that, here’s what you can look forward to in April (*Spoiler* – it’s a good’un).
The first sunny specks of spring have started to emerge – I’ve seen two trees in full blossom already! It’s around this time of year that I start to get really excited about all of the fun festivals and outdoor events that will be gracing Bristol this summer – we’ll be seeing the return of Food Connections, Grillstock Festival, Make Sundays Special and Eat Drink Bristol Fashion – what else are you excited about?
Let’s not get too ahead of ourselves though; before we can resume supping cider on the quayside outside Arnolfini, we first have to make it through the final weeks of frosty, windy March – luckily there’s plenty to look forward to though…
