The Bristol Home & Food Festival, now in its second year, will play host to TV chef Martin Blunos at the new purpose-built venue, the UWE Exhibition & Conference Centre in Frenchay, Bristol on 27-28th October.
The event, organised by Nationwide Exhibitions, will showcase the very best that Bristol has to offer including myriad local chefs, producers and tempting homewares.
Visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy live cookery demonstrations by two Michelin starred TV chef Martin Blunos and other top local chefs including Toby Gritten of The Pumphouse and Bird in Hand, and Chris Wicks of Bell’s Diner and Berwick Lodge.
Martin Blunos is looking forward to coming back to his Bristol roots:
“There’s nothing quite like coming back to my home town and sharing experiences and top tips with others. Bristol has a top food scene and some really fantastic chefs! I really enjoy live cookery demos and I am delighted to be taking part in the festival.”
In addition, local producers will be holding an array of contemporary food and drink master classes in the demonstration theatres. These will include a session on Keeve fermented cider, a demonstration of organic juice production by multiple Great Taste Gold Award-winning Lovely Drinks as well as a sherry tasting session hosted by Harveys Cellar Bar (home of Harveys Bristol Cream).
Food isn’t the only item on the agenda: visitors will find a fantastic range of quality companies showcasing new and innovative ways to improve the home. Exhibitors will range from external security solutions to beautiful granite work surfaces and the latest home entertainment systems. There will also be eco-friendly solutions for water and energy!
Visitors to The Bristol Home and Food Festival will be able to browse, sample and experience the best exhibitors Bristol and the West has to offer such as Neal’s Yard, Maison Bijou, and Teme Valley Beds.

“We are holding the Home and Food Festival at the UWE Exhibition Centre for the second year running after a hugely successful exhibition last year. It continues Nationwide Exhibitions’ 30-year history of creating and launching distinctive, innovative events. It is really exciting to be majoring on food this time in a city with such a vibrant local food scene. The Festival will provide a unique opportunity for foodies and home lovers to discover new products and ideas in a fun and friendly environment.”
