Flavour Fest attracts thousands of visitors to the city centre over the three days of the event. Previously we have found that the first hour of each day tends to be the quietest should you wish to visit when there are fewer people are around. Please note though that our new format for the event is one large marquee on the Piazza so whatever the weather over the three days we expect it to be busy.
At the front of the viewing area for watching the cookery theatre there will be a designated accessibility space.
Whilst the main event will all be held under one large marquee on the Piazza, our popular street food traders will be situated along Armada Way and the street food bar will be in Place de Brest where there will be a seating area for customers - at times this may provide a less busy place to sit and enjoy the event.
There are also a number of venues within the city centre that would be delighted to welcome visitors who need a chilled out area to enjoy including Moments Cafe (69A New George Street), Coffee Time (134 Cornwall Street), Power Plant Café (59 Cornwall Street) and The Treasury (Catherine Street).
There are public toilets, including disabled toilets on Armada Way.
If you find yourself needing any help on the day please look out for the stewards in yellow jackets or event staff in orange jackets as they’ll be happy to help.
