If you’ve never visited Bristol, or are dying to come here to see friends and family but can’t find a good deal on travel – I’ve got a great competition for you!
As part of the Bristol Food Connections festival, happening May 1-9 this year, I’m giving away a pair of standard class return tickets to Bristol, courtesy of First Great Western Trains. Basically, you can come to Bristol during the Food Connections festival, from anywhere on their network, for free! You can enter using the competition widget below.
Coming during Food Connections will be awesome – it’s going to be permeating the whole city for just over a week, including the May Bank Holiday, and there’s so much to do (and eat!). Check out this what’s on map to find out more, or download the full programme here.
Here’s what Food Connections says about itself:
Food Connections aims to change how we think about food and how we eat by ‘Bringing people and good food together’ and by celebrating the people, the produce and the projects that are putting Bristol on the map as a sustainable food capital.
All over Bristol, dozens of individuals, groups, organisations and businesses – united by their passion for good food – will come together to stage a food event unlike any other.
The flagship food event for Bristol 2015, European Green Capital, Food Connections will comprise over 130 events all over the city divided into six themes: land and growing, wellbeing, feasting and festivities, get cooking, brain food and families.
My top three picks of things to check out would be:
The slow food menu chosen from the Ark of Taste. The list of chefs on this, and the reasoning behind the Ark of Taste, is so compelling, my curiosity is going to overwhelm me and I’ll be buying us a couple of tickets.
Um..the cider trail? You can’t really come to Bristol and not have at least one sip of cider.
I love the idea of the Eat In on May 4 as well, basically a giant pot luck lunch with decent conversation guaranteed.
Love this competition – if I didn’t live here, I’d so come here for a weekend on holiday (which I did used to do!)
