A two day outdoor festival will be held in the City of Bath this weekend to celebrate coffee and to help charity. This will be the UK’s first coffee festival which is surprising as it is such a great idea. Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th May 2010 will find a whole host of exhibitors showcasing their wares at the Recreation Ground just near the train station.
On Saturday the festival will be on between 10am and 5pm and on Sunday it starts and finishes an hour earlier at 11am to 4pm. Unlike the Affordable Art Fair there is no entry fee. What will be there, according to the organisers, is a great variety of activities from celebrity chef, Martin Blunos, demonstrating how to flavour foods with coffee to Samba classes on Sunday.
My favourite event so far is the Turkish coffee event which takes place between 1:15pm and 1:45pm. A close second is Jean Pierre Auge’s session from 12pm to 12:30pm which mentions coffee martinis. Maybe they’ll even have carajillos somewhere? I can only hope.
