Weston super Food Festival children activities
PUBLISHED: 15:00 01 June 2013
AN IMPRESSIVE programme of children's activities will be on offer during the Weston super Food Festival later this year.
The Mercury-supported event, taking place on September 21 and 22, will offer fun for the whole family with a range of different activities lined up for culinary enthusiasts of all ages.
Held in conjunction with the YMCA, most of the activities will be held at Barcode youth café in South Parade and admission will be free.
Among the food-themed activities will be arts and crafts sessions, where children can create their own edible vegetable monster, make a colourful mosaic using beans and lentils or draw pictures of their favourite meals.
The bravest children can try many different foods they have not tried before in the scary food challenge or pedal their way to a delicious fruity drink on the smoothie bike.
And in the Little Minno Kitchen, children aged three to 10 can have fun while learning to bake bread and savoury muffins.
Weston Museum in Burlington Street has also teamed up with the festival to offer a programme of food-related exhibitions.
From September 17-29, visitors can discover lost recipes and forgotten delicacies, discover the most popular foods in Weston and learn about some nasty dinners of the past.
Festival organiser Sally Packer is happy to hear from anyone who would like to volunteer or has an idea for the festival and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
