A Foodie Summer Banquet at Withy Baths

Summer Banquet at Withington Baths 2014

So excited to be blogging this event, our first foodie type pop up at Withington Baths, which many of you will know has been a community campaign close to my heart since January 2013. Many local people will be a bit surprised that there can even be such an event at a building which has been only ever used for swimming and more recently a gym, but it’s all past of a master plan to get the community used to SO much more there – if we can persuade Manchester City Council to allow a community group to run the building instead of closing it down in Spring 2015, the world is its oyster – sport, health, wellbeing, workspace, community rooms and kitchens, a cafe, creative space….. just imagine!

On Sunday July 13th, some amazing local businesses will be collaborating to create a wonderful event: 

  • One of Manchester’s best foodie supper club organisers, the Drunken Butcher has created a fabulous five course Summer menu and Prosecco cocktail on arrival, with of course a veggie option available too
  • BBC Food & Drink presenter Kate Goodman from Reserve Wines will be on hand for wine advice, tasting & samples
  • Floral arrangements by Siân at Didsbury Flower Lounge
  • Truffle making and chocolates by Sarah at Cocoa Cabana, and
  • Photography by JonnyDraper Photography

We very much hope you’ll join us on what’s going to be great inaugural food event, an absolute bargain at just £20: Tickets here 

To give you an idea of the standard of food, I was at a preview for Something Fishy last night where the Drunken Butcher was cooking, check out some of his creations below, alongside those of Jon Fell and Bobby’s Bangers:
