The Glass Works in Barnsley is a new 200 million pound, modern, contemporary retail and leisure destination, which compliments the traditions of Barnsley’s historic markets and reflects the famous Barnsley spirit, all located in the heart of the town centre.
At the heart of the development, the Glass Works Square significantly enhances the accessibility and connectivity of the town centre by providing direct access to and from the Transport Interchange, as well as creating a high-quality and attractive public space for events, where people can enjoy, meet and relax in.
The long-term vision for Flavours Food Festival is to create a signature event for the borough based upon market research undertaken as part of the development consultation activities which demonstrated a high demand for a food and drink festival within the town centre.
Barnsley Councils Arts & Events team are committed to providing annual events and activities which increase visitor numbers and dwell time within the town centre, and for the month of May their theme for the area is 'Food and Drink'. With this theme in mind, the Flavours food festival has been planned over four days to meet these ambitions.
The Glass Works and wider town centre also benefits from ample parking and a centralised public tranport hub - off street parking on Saturday and Sundays is free for the first three hours.
Food Festivals Ltd have been commissioned by the Council to host a Food and Drink Festival during the dates of 19th - 22nd May. The festival will comprise of food product stalls, food and drink concessions (a limited number) and a festival cookery demonstration area which will also be used for entertainment and live music.
With the event being in a town centre, and on hard standing areas, it is imperative that marquees are secured correctly, thus marquees will be provided for product and trade exhibitors. Security will also be on site for the duration of the set-up and event.
