We have some great news to share.
We’re joining forces with our good friends at Bearwood Pantry (two of us Muthas are actually founder members of Bearwood Pantry so that’s how good the friendship is!) to put on a very special event in September. We’re calling this creative collaboration The Crafty Pantry Food Festival – see what we did there?
With two successful food festivals behind them, The Pantry are once again inviting local food producers, cake makers, bakers and chefs to set up stalls in and around the Bearwood Baptist Church on Bearwood Road. This time however, the annual Food Festival will have a crafty twist. We’ll be providing craft stalls and childrens’ workshops alongside the tasty treats.
Once again, the Food Festival will be celebrating Bearwood’s diverse community and championing great quality food in all price ranges with a variety of stalls offering cuisine from around the world as well as homegrown local honey producers and jam and chutney makers. Organisations including Bearwood Allotments and Smethwick Foodbank will also be raising awareness of food related issues affecting local people.
Something new for 2016 is travelling book shop ‘How Brave is The Wren’ which stocks beautifully crafted illustrated stories and picture books for the young and young at heart. The Wren’s bespoke caravan shop will be pitching up on Bearwood Road ready to inspire young minds. Indoors the crafts on offer range from jewellery to crochet from some of our favourite makers and even a kids’ corner where talented youngsters will be selling their handmade products (our kids have been badgering us for years to make this happen!)
The Bearwood Crafty Pantry Food Festival takes place in and around Bearwood Road and Bearwood Baptist Church Hall, Rawlings Road, B66 4HA, from 11.00am until 4pm on Saturday 17th September 2016.
We’ll update this site with more info as the big day approaches.
