It’s almost time for the BBC Good Food Show at the NEC Birmingham, back this year between 26-29th November. I’ve been part the BBC GFS Blogger Community for almost three years now and in that time I’ve met some great brands, tried some delicious new products (which are now firm favourites) and most of all, had a lot of fun.
Personally, I prefer the Winter show to the summer one – it marks the start of the festive season for me and is a great place to pick up Christmas gifts. If you’ve never been to the show before, here are a couple of first timer tips:
If you want to see the demos on the smaller stages, you will need to be there at least ten mins prior to get a seat! And if you’ve got tickets for the supertheatre (lucky you!) make sure you have your bearings about you. Waking from one side of the show to the other can take time when it’s busy and once they get started, the lights go own and you’ll have missed the boat!This year, the supertheatre has some really great demos on – including ones from Tom Kerridge and Michel Roux Jr!
Firstly you need comfy shoes, a trolley or big shopping bag (or you can buy them there!). Mummy Bites opts for her very jazzy trolley.. bought especially for the show we might add! I would also suggest short sleeves. Even in November, it gets warm in there so you don’t want to be lugging coats and jumpers around.
