About

Manchester Food and Drink Festival 2015

The Manchester Food and Drink Festival is a nationally acclaimed event
that has developed to its current level over 18 years. Conceived and developed by Phil Jones and Chris Tomlinson in 1998, the event
originated as a means of showing the rest of the nation that there was more to Manchester dining than the stereotypes that existed at the time.

In the 17 annual Festivals that have taken place over that time, the
Festival has achieved a national status & will return for 2015 between 10th -21st September.

It is an urban food and drink festival, there is no single location,
rather the Festival takes over as much of the City Centre and surrounding
districts of Greater Manchester as possible, with a huge programme of events
taking place, both indoor and outdoor.

The Festival highlights a number of 'Festival themes', issues which
affect the food and drink industry in the region.

Like Manchester itself, the Festival is both Original and Modern. Events
and participation have ranged from a children's food workshop at a community
library in Salford, to a glittering Gala Dinner at The Lowry Hotel.

Over the years the Festival has drawn names as diverse as Jamie Oliver,
Gordon Ramsay, Bill Wyman and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
