The event, which will offer a wide selection of food and drink, will be hosted at Forum Kitchen and Bar on the first weekend of every month.

The Forum Feast has been put together in partnership with A Taste of Independent Sheffield to create a new type of street food experience.

The vendors taking part in the monthly feast include Morgan’s Wood Fire Catering, Whirlow Hall Farm, Espressino Bar and Caribbean Fusion.

The organiser of the new venture, Julie Wilson, said the event will offer people a chance to enjoy lots of different flavours in one place.

She said: “We were so excited when Forum approached us with the idea of hosting a street food event.

“There are some amazing caterers in Sheffield and we’re always looking for new ways to showcase what they have to offer.

“The monthly event will offer something for everyone from exciting fusion food to locally-sourced homemade favourites.”

The Forum Feast will take place on the first weekend of every month, running from 12pm to 9pm on Saturdays and 12pm to 6pm on Sundays. It will be hosted at the iconic bar’s terrace. Food and drink will be served up throughout the day from attending vendors as well as the pizza bar Slice Bar.

The events are free to attend and prices will vary between vendors. There will be four new vendors at each event – every one serving different types of food.

Jess Graham, who attended October’s Forum Feat, said: “This is a great idea. As a student I eat out a lot and the Caribbean food was really great and good value.”

Another person who attended, Brad Furniss, said: “The coffee was exactly the pick me up I needed on a Sunday, especially nice in the unexpected sunshine.”

The next Food Feast will be held on November 2 and 3 and will be bonfire night themed.

Espressino Bar and Morgans Wood Fired Catering have confirmed they will be attending the event, with more vendors that are yet to confirm. Everyone welcome, including dogs.

The aim is to make the event monthly all year round.

General Manager Becca Dainty said: “Forum Feast is a brilliant opportunity to showcase local food vendors, after a great turnout for our first one we’re looking forward to the next on.

“We’ll have a fantastic selection of food on offer, so bring your friends and family for a day out in Sheffield.”
