A great family day out at the Coventry Food and Drink Festival

The 23rd and 24th June saw the return of the Food and Drink Festival to Coventry City Centre.

The #covhour team took a family trip out in the hope of catching a glimpse of award winning tv chef Phil Vickery and enjoying the buzz in the city centre. First on the agenda was feeding the children, so whilst they ate pizza and burgers we treated ourselves to a Prosecco from the Prosecco Bus and Beer from Truth & Alibi. On stage we watched the chefs from Hampton Manor expertly do their thing and talk about their beautiful venue.

This was followed by Trish Willetts making Kate & Emma’s dreams come true as they talked to Phil Vickery about Jersey Royals and grabbed a picture.

We then went off to the Kids Kitchen where the children and Chris enjoyed preparing a noodle dish. This was quickly followed by slush puppies and sweets all round from one of the stall holders.

The kids’ fun continued as they had their faces painted by the wonderful #covhour team member Christine from Unique Face Painting. Whilst the kids were entertained the adults enjoyed the music on the bandstand, Chris had the best burger he had ever tasted and Emma had gin from Bayley Lane Kitchen.

A fab time was had by all, well done to Trish and the Coventry Bid Team for all the hard work they put in. See you next year!

#Covhour was started on 22nd August 2013 and was the first online networking hour for Coventry.  It was set up with the aim to help local businesses to connect, to share information and to support each other.  Now with a community of more than 10,500 followers in less than four years, we can safely say that this has been achieved!   


The unique thing about this online networking group is that it was started by a local Coventry woman Joanne Brooks and unlike most other groups she does not run her own business she is employed by a business in the City.  When asked about the reason she started #Covhour Joanne replied "I enjoy connecting people and I am so proud of the city having lived here all my life, that I wanted to do my bit and to give something back.  I have met so many wonderful people through #Covhour and although it is a big commitment running the networking hour every week, I just love it!"  

Joanne continues to host #Covhour every Thursday between 8 pm and 9 pm and so why not join in this Thursday?
