This Saturday the 20th seems to be the climax of Birmingham’s December Festive seasonal foodie calender.
It’s a bit like buses, you wait around for ages and then three turn up at once.
I’ve mentioned Brum Yum Yum KingshEATh already, but two more events also going on in or near the City Centre.
First off is, The Birmingham Cruelty Free Christmas Fair at Carrs Lane Church Centre B4 7SX in the City Centre.
From 10.30-4pm 30 stalls will be offering a wide variety of animal free products, chocolate, cosmetics, cakes, recipe books, soaps, sweets, and gifts and much more with delicious vegan catering from ChangeKitchen whom I’m big fans of and much more fresh food stalls and nibbles to tempt you.
Also, stbestcaterers, will be bringing top quality food, the best in Caribbean cuisine will be showcasing too.
Run by West Midlands Vegan Fest, promoting veganism in the West Midlands including free food fairs and events.
Supporting local Animal Sanctuaries, campaigning groups and small ethical traders. The fair will be free entry and run from 10.30am-4pm.
The second event is Digmas 12pm-6pm at The Custard Factory in Digbeth, Birmingham.
The Christmas Fair will be an alternative day out and be the best of local traders, Street food, a pop up bar and entertainment.
Digbeth Dining Club will be doing the food and for veggies and vegans the esteeemed Vegan Grindhouse will be there along with The
Bournville Waffle Company.
Alfie Birds another Veggie Foodie Favourite will be provideing the drinks with a pop up bar- including craft beer, Bailey’s Hot Choc, and Christmas Cocktails.
Street food and bar running until 8pm.
Plus, there will be live music, an Urban Village Vintage fair, and a Mockingbird Theatre treats (see website) plus other independent luminaries from The Custard Factory to tempt and loosen your purse strings.
So catch them both if you can, :)
