Food-lovers across the region are preparing for a week of exciting gastronomic treats, delicious discounts and tasty £10 menus as the city gets ready for It’s in Nottingham’s Taste of Nottingham which takes place from 21 to 27 September 2015.
Organised by the Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID), a Taste of Nottingham is a city-wide culinary celebration when Nottingham will showcase its vast array of great food and drink venues and encourage visitors to make the city their destination of choice when it comes to experiencing new flavours and surroundings or enjoying old favourites.
During this special week, people will be encouraged to enjoy an excellent value £10 menu deal offered by some of Nottingham’s favourite city centre restaurants, cafes and bars. These include 4550 Miles from Delhi, Bad Juju, Chino Latino, Carluccio’s, Harvester, Patisserie Valerie, Rub Smokehouse Wildwood and World Service
All the details of the events and the venues taking part together with exclusive offers, features and recipes showcasing Nottingham’s superb food and drink offering, have been brought together in a specially created Taste of Nottingham guide.
30,000 copies of the guide are being distributed to Nottingham homes and a further 20,000 will be available in the city centre at the businesses involved, which include hotels, tourist information centres and shopping centres.
The week-long initiative will come to a fitting climax at the Great Notts Show in Old Market Square which takes place from Thursday 24 to Sunday 27 September. As part of the event a whole host of food and drink businesses from around the city will be taking part in a special Taste of Nottingham Market, near the Brian Clough Statue and adjacent to the Square. With an array of mouth-watering gastronomic delights, stalls, and culinary demonstrations, the market will have something to suit all tastes.
The Great Notts Show celebrates all that is great in Nottinghamshire, from food and drink through to live entertainment, arts, crafts, and everything in between. Last year’s event attracted over 100,000 visitors and this year it is anticipated to be even more popular with a Thursday night comedy stage as part of the Nottingham Comedy Festival being an appealing addition to the schedule with an extended bar and stage area to accommodate the crowds.
Over the course of the market visitors will be able to try sample dishes or new products for just £1 with the Nottingham Taste Trail at participating stalls as well as at businesses around the city – look out for the Taste Trail poster.
“A Taste of Nottingham looks set to be a great event and I would encourage people to come and sample some of Nottingham’s superb food,” said Tom Waldron Lynch, vice-chairman of the Nottingham BID. “The week is designed to showcase our wonderful food offering, create a great experience in the city and give a boost to business at our restaurants and bars.”
