On August 20th the lower end of North Street, from Hebron Road to Cannon Street, will be transformed for the Big Bemmy Banquet. Everyone is invited to come and join the fun! Local traders will serve up special one-off dishes and those from a little further afield will be joining in with stalls and pop-ups, to add to the market feel.
However, this is no ordinary banquet as 500 meals will be served up for free, as part of a wider initiative to honour the hard work and dedication of some of the areas’ unsung heroes and the BID are asking people to nominate those who they feel deserves a seat at the table this August.
Nominees will receive their free meal ticket for the event on August 20th, as lower North Street will be transformed into a globally inspired dining destination. However, you don’t have to be a ticket holder to get in on the fun, the Big Bemmy Banquet will be open to all and people are encouraged to come on down and get a flavour of Bedminster.
We want 500 people who have made a difference in the area through voluntary and community work to join us to enjoy a community meal for free as Bedminster's' way of saying thank you. If you know someone who deserves to be nominated, then email firstname.lastname@example.org with their contact details and your own - plus why they are nominated!
As well as the massive banquet the street will be filled with live entertainment. There will be live music, displays and demonstrations from community groups and kids activities all inspired by international influences.
