Since its inception in 2014, Bristol Food Connections has been celebrating the incredible culinary culture and characters of our fair city. BFC helps people from Bristol and beyond to discover delicious new local eateries, to learn about the people and industries underpinning these places, and to ask themselves wider questions relating to food and our lives. How can we strengthen a city's sense of community through food? What can be done to tackle food waste? And how can we encourage people to move away from the high street, urging them instead to discover some of the myriad independent businesses that blossom across Bristol?

These are just some of the issues explored in previous years at BFC, with the festival bringing people of all ages, shapes and sizes together through a love of great food. After a hiatus in 2017, Bristol Food Connections is back with a bang for 2018. Wriggle are absolutely delighted to be ticketing events for this years festival; check out a comprehensive list of what's on below...
