Taste of Knowle West

12/07/2016 - 15/07/2016
11:00 am - 6:00 pm

Love to cook, bake, make or grow your own? We’re on the look-out for the best food and drink Knowle West has to offer!

As part of the Who Decides What’s in my Fridge project, KWMC is finding out who is cooking and growing in Knowle West. Artist Anne-Marie Culhane is bringing a pop-up ‘Shed on Wheels’ to the area to host two days of activities and a local produce competition (see details below).  The Shed on Wheels is an ‘upcycled’ electric milk float, devised by Anne-Marie for a project in Plymouth and brought to Bristol for the first time this summer.

You can find us at Inns Court on Tuesday 12th July and Filwood Broadway on Friday 15th July, when we’ll be out with the pop-up Shed on Wheels from 11am-6pm on both days. Come along and:
