Feast on world flavours at Brindleyplace Food Festival

City venue to host some of Birmingham’s culinary stars.

It’s almost time to watch chef demonstrations and indulge in dishes from around the world with Brindleyplace’s free food festival next week.

Taking place in Central Square from 11am on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th September, festival goers can enjoy a mouth-watering selection of international cuisines at the market of over twenty stalls. On offer will be street food and take home dishes from Sri Lanka, Eastern Europe, Spain, Turkey and even America, so you can eat straight away or savour your tasty treats at home.

Live music from across the world will be playing throughout the festival, so you could find yourselves tapping to the rhythm of steel drums, shimmying and shaking with a live Mariachi band and even swinging your hips to the samba!

On Saturday 14th visitors will get the chance to watch the professionals in action at the Food Demo Kitchen. Learn how to cook global gastronomies with top chef, Simon Brown; or take a peek into the world of fine dining with Maribel’s Harvey Perttola, one of the city’s youngest culinary stars. Resident bars and restaurants are also involved, with slots to discover the art of cocktail making from Pitcher and Piano and perfecting pizza making skills with Piccolino

Stacey Muir, Marketing & Events Executive at Brindleyplace, said: “We can’t wait for this autumn’s food festival. We know our office workers, local residents and neighbours love the food markets we run through the summer, so we are bringing some new flavour to Brindley with another free event! It will be packed full of food and entertainment. Enjoy as much street food as you can manage at our specialist stalls, check out the Demo Kitchen, chill out in the square or get your dancing shoes on to the live music.”

Brindleyplace’s charity partner, Ronald McDonald House Charities UK will be treating festival goers to a celebration in honour of its 30th birthday. You’ll be able to take part in the Static Bike Challenge and help cycle 300 miles while raising much needed funds for the charity on the Friday, or enjoy a birthday cupcake of your own creation and take part in a treasure hunt on the Saturday – all while supporting the vital work the charity carries out.
