Taste at the Top of Town
Following on from last year’s first and successful Taste at the Top of Town delivered by BIG Adventures, partnering with Proteus Theatre Company we again in 2016 won the contract to deliver an annual programme of events at the Top of the Town. Our mission with Taste was to continue with creating a quality food experience, attract foodies from Hampshire and ensure visitors were aware of the cultural and business offer at the Top of the Town, an area undergoing major regeneration.
We partnered with Hampshire Fare and their July programme of Hampshire Food events. This helped us reach new audiences and allowed us to attract quality food producers.
We created an improved Food Theatre and along with local guest chefs brought in celebrity chef Bran Turner. We created a food offers leaflet which persuaded visitors to visit the food related businesses for a period of up to 2 weeks after the event.
We ensured there was an arts related family offer by forming a partnership with Hampshire Cultural Trust which enabled us to bring in renowned street theatre Company Plunge Boom with their installation piece ‘’ The Allotment ‘’. Elsewhere, food poets, arts and crafts activity, busk stops with acoustic musicians and The Hungry Chefs kept audiences entertained with activity throughout the day.
