MANCHESTER FOOD & DRINK FESTIVAL 8TH OCT 2010
Here’s a short video I made of mine and my friend Doovd’s visit to Manchester Food & Drink Festival to see some free bands on the All FM stage. Acts included Girl Peculiar, Ed Blaney (former manager of The Fall) and The James Lewis Band. We also entered some competitions and sampled some Robinsons ales, Chocolate Tom was my favourite whereas Doovd preferred Ginger Tom but the gingeryness got too much after a while. The festival is on until October 11th. During the day it’s a good opportunity to see some chef demos and get free food!
