Blanch & Shock: Blood Moon Feast
The festival opens with a feast by radical food designers Blanch & Shock in a canalside urban garden. It has been directly inspired by and sourced from the garden at Edible Eastside and the agricultural environs of Birmingham. In the run up to the feast they have made several preserving trips to the garden to take advantage of the produce in its prime, including tomatoes red and green, cucumbers, courgettes, coriander, dill, fennel and bergamot. For the feast they will serve a combination of fresh and preserved produce, focusing mostly on fruit and vegetables grown in the garden and nearby, accompanied by freshly made cheese and their homemade bread and butter. In addition to the produce, they will be using Edible Eastside’s wood-fired oven and much of the food will be prepared in this or grilled over wood.
The Blind Leading the Blind Tour was inspired by the Bruegel painting of six ragged figures stumbling across a rural landscape. This proverbial metaphor of desperate trust and hopeless failure seems as relevant now as it was in biblical times.
When: Saturday 5th October, 23:00-late
Where: Club PST, Lombard Street, Digbeth
Club Fierce: XXX
A night of live music. A rush of alternative hip-hop, grimey beats and electro-glitchy-pop, DJs and short films from Kino 10.
With autumn drawing in, it’s time to make the most of the last of the summer sunshine and get On Your Bike!
The Birmingham Mail recently published a leisurely six-mile circular route along the city’s canal network, starting and ending in Digbeth, so there’s no excuse not to get out and about!
The cycle route starts in Fazeley Street, Digbeth, but if you’re making your way by train or want a local landmark, start from Moor Street Station.
You’ll come to a canal junction straight away. Go over the bridge and turn left to pass under the same bridge and onto the towpath. You’ll see the garden of Edible Eastside across the water followed soon after by Warwick Bar and The Bond.
For more detail on the route, click the image to visit the Birmingham Mail website.
