What is great about food in Bridport? Have your say….

Posted on Jun 9, 2016

The People’s Wishlist for the Future of Food in Bridport will be one of the key topics of conversation at this year’s Food Festival when the Talkaoke comes to town.

The Talkaoke, a dynamic, interactive attraction, brand new for 2016, will engage festival goers in conversations about all kinds of issues, including everything to do with food.

“The People’s Wishlist is a great place to start conversations at the Talkaoke Table,” says Linda Hull from Communities Living Sustainably, who pulled together the Wishlist from hundreds of conversations with local people. “The Talkaoke will give local people a chance to have their say about what’s great about food in Bridport and how we could make it easier for more local people to enjoy more local food.”

Sponsored this year by Leakers Bakery, the Talkaoke is set to be a highlight of the day. Caroline Parkins from Leakers is keen to raise awareness of food issues and thinks the Festival is a great place to do it. “Food is central to our lives,” says Caroline, “and everyone can talk about food because we all eat! It’s certainly a big consideration ahead of the referendum as we import more than half of our food from abroad!”

Look out for the Talkaoke Table near the Tea Tent and come ready to share your thoughts and ideas for the Future of Food in Bridport.
