SAL­FORD’S Food and Drink Fort­night is back to prove that it’s not just Manch­ester city cen­tre that’s cook­ing up a storm. Now in its 13th year, the an­nual cel­e­bra­tion will see lo­cal food and drink he­roes com­ing to­gether to pro­mote the best of their food scene.

From a pub crawl by canal boat to an ‘ap­ple pie-off,’ there’s a huge menu com­ing up over the next cou­ple of weeks.

Coun­cil­lor Ann-Marie Humphreys, ex­ec­u­tive sup­port mem­ber for cul­ture leisure and sport, said: “Sal­ford of­fers a huge buf­fet of well-es­tab­lished and pop­u­lar restau­rants, cafes and pubs, which have been joined this year by many new venues. They’re all food and drink he­roes and we want to cel­e­brate every one.

“We’ve seen new places open in Mon­ton, along Chapel Street, and at Sal­ford Quays, so we’re throw­ing open the doors of the city and invit­ing ev­ery­one to come in and have a taste.” Peel Park Fire Gar­den Shad­ows, fire sculp­tures, and twirling smoke will ac­com­pany a stel­lar food and drink line-up at this launch event in Peel Park. Wrap up warm and head into the great out­doors for what prom­ises to be a mag­i­cal evening cel­e­brat­ing our Sal­ford food and drink he­roes. Free park­ing will be avail­able from 5pm at Ir­well Place Car Park, 41-42 Cres­cent, Sal­ford, M5 4PE.

Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 13, 6-8pm / Free En­try / Peel Park, Cres­cent, Sal­ford, M5 4PD The In­de­pen­dent Sal­ford Beer Fes­ti­val The cosy lo­cal beer fes­ti­val is back for its 4th year with yet more stel­lar brews. For­get cheeky thirds at Indy Man Beer Con, it’s more of a ‘pint and pick­led egg’ kind of beer fest, but charm­ing none­the­less. Lo­cal bands on both Fri­day and Satur­day will pro­vide the sound­track to both nights courtesy of Sweet Sweet Records.
