What's On

Taste in the Garden event 

Friday 15 June, 3.15-5.15
St Mary's School, Bridport

As part of Bridport Food Festival, we are running a celebration in our Edible Garden at St Mary's. Pizza making, stir fry, Martin Maudsley's confabulations, pea ping pong, and many more fun things  to do. This year we are part of Pease Please - Pledge for Veg campaign, and TTB/HOME have raised money for Mary, a nutritionist, to work at the school to promote healthier eating. Come along and prepare to be surprised.

Bridport Food Festival

Saturday 16 June, Askers Meadow

Come and find TTB's stall in the Food FeBridport Town Council tent.
St Mary's edible garden team is also involved in the childrens' tent: 
  • There'll be four  hands-on cooking workshops including a lunchtime special, 'taste fish and make chips' (plus fresh tomato ketchup!), where kids can learn about different sources of fish.
  • The ever- popular cycle-powered juice-making with this year's smoothie operator, Lloyd Brown who'll be bringing his mixologist flair to inspire some delicious drinks.
  • Younger foodies can get busy decorating fish-shaped biscuits from Leakers Bakery, and all ages can join in the 'fantastic not plastic' art and craft making in the creative area.
  • Professional artists Michelle Hazell and Polly Huggett will be there to help youngsters decorate cotton tote bags, decorate fishy willow-frame puppets and join in the annual Sladers Yard still life competition.
  • Once again early years expert Debbie Smith will be creating a play zone for young children with space for their carers to sit down and enjoy the festival.  They'll have use of a little bit of 'seaside' in an imaginative sand pit with cooking toys to make beach rather than mud pies.
  • Saint Marys' Primary School will also be there to share expertise from their 'Edible Garden' team, including nutritionist Mary Buesnel who is working on a project to explore different tastes.

Bridport Soup

Wednesday 20th June 
Main Hall at the United Church on East Street

 The third Bridport soup is organised by the team participating in Stir to Action’s Unlocking the Next Economy programme. It is a creative way of raising funds and raising awareness of your project.

The idea is simple: For £4 you get a bowl of soup made from locally sourced produce and a vote. During the evening four local projects will each deliver a four-minute pitch about their project, its community benefits and what the funding will support. Each pitch is then followed by four or five questions from the audience, and then the crowd votes. The winning project receives the takings from the door and pledges to share how they’ve used their funding at the next Soup.
Sign up via Eventbrite to confirm your place and ‘Pay What You Feel’ on the night (Suggested contribution £4 upwards).
If you’ve got a great idea and would like to pitch on the evening, then fill out our simple application form at Application Deadline is 7th June 2018.
