Jam-packed food, drink & entertainment schedule.
Manchester Food & Drink Festival is all about celebrating the city’s dining scene, and as we talk about all things food-porn here, we thought we’d give you the low down on the line up so far and what you can expect from the foodie event of the year, after all the event is up our street.
The heart of the festival, the hub, used to take centre stage at the Town Hall but with all important construction work taking place, it’s moved to a brand-new location this year at the stunning Manchester Cathedral Gardens.
Taking place on 26th September – 7th October, the Cathedral Gardens will be transformed in to the ultimate foodie oasis and entertainment spot. You’ll be able to tantalise your taste buds with exquisite food from top street food traders, indulge in cocktails and beer whilst attending cookery theatres, taking a look around the artisan producers market and soaking up the live entertainment from the centre stage.
The first event in the programme has recently been announced with the Wine and Fizz festival taking place on 4th and 5th October. For £15 a head you’ll be given a taste of wines from all around the world. On arrival you’ll be given a tasting glass to fill with wine from brands such as Croatian Fine Wines and 3D wines. You can grab your tickets here.
Not only will events take place in the hub but the MFDF will also see a number of events take place in venues across the city, including community cafes, shipping containers, art galleries, roof top bars, with the full programme being released gradually in the lead up to the festival.
