Commenting on the event, Josh Eggleton said:

“We’ve set up Eat Drink Bristol Fashion to celebrate Bristol’s thriving food scene. Many local suppliers, chefs and restaurants are doing great work and in the process making Bristol one of the most exciting culinary cities in the country.”

“It’s a simple but creative concept. By bringing restaurants from across the city to the centre we’ll give Bristolians the chance to experience great food of places they may have never ventured to before.”

Co-Director of the event Luke Hasell added:

“We hope Eat Drink Bristol Fashion will further cement Bristol’s position on the UK’s cultural map. Not only will the food be fantastic, but the entertainment including visual art, bands and DJs will make our unique tipi venue an attraction in itself.

“We hope that Bristolians will turn out in force to support the project and make Eat Drink Bristol Fashion an event to remember”

Josh and Luke approached the Council with an idea for an exciting new pop-up restaurant and venue six months ago and have been working alongside place making director, Mike Bennett to turn it into reality.

Councillor Barbara Janke, Leader of Bristol City Council stated:

“This is a fantastic place making project for Bristol.  It will showcase the breadth of world class talent we have in the food and restaurant sector, both in Bristol and across the wider region.”

“It’s very exciting that some of Bristol’s finest restaurants are coming together to collaborate in what’s all set to be a totally unique dining experience in one of the finest settings the city has to offer.”
