Award winning event case studies at TMI Hot Topic
23rd April 2019
Delegates to TMI’s Hot Topic in London next month (23 May, University of Westminster) will hear from Bev and Sarah Milner Simonds, the driving force behind eat:Festivals. They have won 22 awards for their festivals – free to attend, locally focused one day events in town centre in Somerset, adding not just atmosphere to the destination but offering locals and visitors the chance to sample local produce and engage with local producers. For more information and to book, visit the TMI web site and remember, Early Bird rates close on 30 April!
Bev and Sarah built eat:Festivals to meet the needs of food and drink producers and communities who have lost their connection with the land. They aim to involve producers from within a 25 mile radius of the town. This promises to be a fascinating insight into how building engagement through celebrating local food and drink, with additional attractions such as cook school, demonstrations, entertainment and competitions, offers benefits to all: farmers, producers, residents and visitors.
