What’s on for Families at Sunday’s Autumn-themed Love Food Festival


This Sunday the Love Food Festival will be taking place in Bristol and it has a special autumnal theme to celebrate the turn of the seasons and everything delicious that comes with it!

There will be plenty of activities to keep children happy at the festival. This includes Day of the Dead arts and crafts, garlic planting to keep the vampires at bay and a Love Food tuck shop, where children will be encouraged to make something delicious and healthy to sell in the tuck shop.

All proceeds from the Love Food tuck shop will go to Magic Breakfast, a charity that provides breakfasts to fuel learning for those that need it.


As it’s the day before Halloween, children and families can expect plenty of spooky goings on, including exceptional pumpkin carving, creepy crafts and our annual children’s fancy dress competition.

And, keep your eyes peeled for the amazing ‘Wilf Keys’ who will be performing his incredible magic show throughout the day!

The demo kitchen will be a celebration of autumn with local chefs and experts providing lots of inspiration for how to cook, preserve and enjoy this season’s abundant produce.


The indoor market will reflect the abundance at this time of year with everything you need for the week’s food shop including fresh fish, grass-fed meats, fresh vegetables, cheeses, fresh bread, jams, chutneys and a few gift ideas to boot. Pick up a hot mulled cider as you wander round the market.

Outside in the courtyard visitors will find an exceptional street food line-up, including seasonal, vegan delights from ‘Beyond the Kale’, Stew and scones from Scoff and Relish, Vietnamese treats from ‘Viet Vite’, delicious flat breads from ‘Persian Kitchen’ and delectable churros from ‘Churros Ole’.

There will also be music provided by Love Food and St Nick’s Night Market resident ‘DJ Rowley’.

The Love Food Festival will be taking place at the Paintworks, Bristol on Sunday 30th October at 10.30am – 4pm.
