Porkstock 2015 receives Chamber members support
Porkstock is back with the backing of more than a few Chamber members including organisers Norfolk Country Cottages, Redcat Partnership and Naked Marketing and sponsorship from Comms Supply, Breakwater IT, Signs Express and Grant Thorntons.
Porkstock is a free-to-attend celebration of artisan food and drink from across our region, and it’s all part of the Norfolk Food and Drink Festival.
The event will be at Redwell Brewery in Norwich on Saturday 25th July 2015 and is set to welcome thousands of people during the day to enjoy some great local food and drink. In 2014 the festival organisers made over £3,000 for two local charities and this year profits will support local charity Ormiston Families; you can find more details here www.ormiston.org
As well as more than 30 stalls selling food and drink from fantastic local producers, there will be music and dance, loads of games and activities for kids and grown-ups, and cookery demonstrations from top local chefs.
There will also be a fantastic opportunity during the day for mums and dads to get hands on with some pork butchery and sausage making workshops led by The Fruit Pig Company.
The kids’ zone will include creative activities for the ‘little piglets’, games to play and we also hope to have some real live magic and children’s entertainment too. And of course there will be plenty of street food treats (including vegetarian options) and wonderful craft beers, wines and soft drinks to enjoy throughout the day. So come along and join the fun.
The daytime event is free to attend and doors are open 9.30am – 5pm.
In the evening Porkstock turns into good old fashioned knees up. There will be music inside the brewery from CC Smugglers, The Vagaband and mariachi band “Beato Burrito”, plus lots more beer and tasty street food. This year will also see the creation of an electro-swing Gin Palace in a marquee at the back of the brewery, where The Goodtimes Republic will be airing some swinging beats to get everybody in the party mood. The evening is ticket only and they cost £15.00 each. Tickets are selling fast so be sure to visit www.porkstock.co.uk today to buy your evening passes or to find out more about the free food and drink event.
If you would like a pitch at the daytime event be quick because there are only a few spaces left, so please visit the website today for more details. If you are as passionate about Norfolk food and drink as we are, we would love to have you on board.
We are also extremely grateful to all of our sponsors including Comms Supply, Breakwater IT, Grant Thornton, Charlie’s Food Heroes, Archers Butchers, Signs Express & Icarus Hines for their valued support without which we couldn’t make this all happen. We do have a few sponsorship packages still available if you are interested please get in touch.
