Nottingham Food & Drink Festival 2012 searches for local stars

Performers from across Nottinghamshire are being invited to take centre stage at this year’s Nottingham Food and Drink Festival.
Organiser We Are Nottingham Leisure, the Business Improvement District (BID) for licensed premises in the city centre, is searching for local singers, dancers, musicians, comedians and other performers. They will get the chance to showcase their skills on a special performance stage, which will form part of the Festival’s regional food and drink market, in Market Square, 4-8 July.
Launching the search for artists, Sylvia Oates, chief executive of We Are Nottingham Leisure, said:
“We wanted to add a new cultural aspect to the Festival for 2012. The performance stage is the perfect opportunity for some of the fantastic talent that we have in the county to get up in front of a live audience. It also offers visitors to the market the chance to sit down and eat their food from one of our many stalls, whilst enjoying the show.
“Whatever your skills or performance experience, we’d love to hear from anyone that’s interested in taking to the stage.”
Now in its fourth year, the Nottingham Food and Drink Festival has a host of new ingredients for 2012. As well as the performance stage, this year’s event will also include a newly extended demonstration area and a new beer and wine sampling marquee, stocked with a wide selection of wines and locally produced real ales.
Venues across the city centre will also be getting involved, hosting unique themed events, masterclasses and special offers.
“The performance stage, coupled with the demo area, beer and wine marquee and the packed food and drink schedule across the city, means that we’re in for a real celebration of all that’s great about Nottingham,” concluded Sylvia. “We would love everyone to come and join the party.”
This year’s Nottingham Food and Drink Festival is sponsored by local low cost airline, bmibaby.

Language makes it all easier and helps us work together and understand one another. Throughout history people always felt the need to find one universal language for all. Several attempts were made to popularise different languages…
