Food for Thought

This year’s Great Bath Feast schedule of events, offers and deals is fit to burst with tastefully indulgent banquets, family-friendly fun, partying opportunities and much, much more. But if you look closely, you’ll find a range of events that help others as we help ourselves. Here’s our round up…

Bath Comedy presents Hardeep Singh Kohli: My Life Through Food

October 5, Widcombe Social Club

Comedian, broadcaster and chef Hardeep Singh Kohli is a funny, funny man, and his fascinating Great Bath Feast event is set to be as rib-tickling as it is tummy-filling. Adding a side order of warmth to proceedings, excess food left over from Hardeep’s cook-off will be donated to local homeless charity Julian House.

Fiona Beckett Wine and Cheese Tasting at Bath Rugby

September 28, Bath Recreation Ground

Fiona Beckett, wine writer for The Guardian and Decanter Magazine, and Ben Lambourne, owner of the brilliant Pong Cheese, join together in an evening of mouthwatering wine and cheese matches. £5 from every ticket purchased will be donated to the Bath Rugby Foundation, so you can do a good deed whilst also indulging your tastebuds.


The Great Bath Scone Off

October 6, 3 Café Kitchen at Three Ways School

Get your bake on, Bath! Pitch your scone-making skills against 3 Café Kitchen’s in-house chef to be crowned Bath’s King or Queen of the Scone. All profits from the fun-filled Scone Off will go towards helping young people with special needs gain training and experience in 3 Café Kitchen.

Can’t make the date? You can still treat yourself whilst supporting young people with additional needs in Bath’s coolest new café, by filling up on sharing platters and a scone for just £10 courtesy of their Great Bath Feast Tenner Treat.

The Great Bath Bakesale

October 7, Bath Abbey

Pack an extra shopping bag and take a stroll around the iconic surroundings of Bath Abbey, browsing an indoor market specialising in cakes, bakes and savouries as you go. Family-friendly children’s activities include pizza making sessions, rides on a bicycle-powered smoothie maker (for those over 130cm tall) and a fun card game highlighting food waste. All funds raised will support Bath Abbey’s Footprint Project and local charities, putting the icing on this already very tempting cake.

Bath Soup Project

October 12, St Mary’s Parish Centre

The date may fall just outside of the Great Bath Feast, but as this unique version of Dragon’s Den has a heart of gold, we’re happy to include it on our menu. Five charitable projects will have five minutes to present their ideas to the audience. Audience members are then able to ask questions, before deciding which project wins the money raised from the event’s £5 entry fee. As an added bonus, audience members will have the opportunity to enjoy a delicious bowl of homemade soup whilst stewing over their decision!
