Festival season was about the furthest thing from my mind this morning. As my daughter and I walked the dog dressed in our cold weather gear, a woman stopped to ask, ‘are you walking your dog again?’ Smiling, but with a slightly tired and vacant look, she said, ‘the sun is up there, somewhere.’
‘It’s milder today,’ I replied, and then I broke our meeting to dive after my daughter who was about to roll in a pile of dog mess. Now I think about it, I have had conversations like this at festivals.
As I write, the rain is pattering at my window. I have spent the evening looking through old photographs of parties, trying to find one that is suitable to post as a caption competition. You see I have been given three pairs of tickets to Brighton Foodies Festival worth £12 each, especially for readers of my blog.
The Brighton Foodies Festival runs from 4th-6th May at Hove Lawns. It coincides with hundreds of other events going on in the city in the month of the Brighton Festival and Fringe. The Foodies Festival promises a lineup well suited to my highly-responsible-and-grown-up-but-still-greedy self. Among the attractions are theatres with cooking classes and demos from leading chefs, bakers, wine buffs and mixologists. There also will be a children’s cookery theatre, VIP dining area, producers market, a ‘street food avenue’ and a city beach to digest it all on.
I have decided against a caption competition because none of my festival photos are publishable. I’m pretty sure a photo of a Staffordshire bull terrier in a pink tutu mounting a woman’s leg isn’t the sort of thing you want to look at on a website you’ve clicked on for some mealtime inspiration. Instead, to be in with a chance of winning a pair of Foodies Festival tickets, I’d like you to share the story of one your most memorable festival meals.
To enter please post your festival food story in the comments below before midday on 29th April. Three winners will picked out at random and notified on 29th April. On supply of a postal address, the tickets will be sent out the following day. All winners’ tickets are valid for entry to the festival on one day only between 4th-6th May.
I look forward to reading your answers!
