There’s a new Hidden Banquet taking place as part of Manchester Food and Drink Festival this year at London Road Fire Station. The 100-capacity event has been designed and created by Deliveroo and the restaurants of Manchester, including Tampopo and Salvi’s. Each Hidden Banquet takes place in one of the city’s intriguing secret spaces and explores a theme relating to Manchester’s heritage. The first Hidden Banquet (called Innovation) to go on sale at London Road with food by Manchester House’s Aiden Byrne has sold out, so this second banquet, entitled Technology, offers a chance to explore the venue and try food from Tampopo (modern Asian). Salvi’s (family-style Italian), Almost Famous (gourmet US street food), Scene (modern Indian) and Vapiano (Italian). Each course paired with a wine by selected by local wine experts, Veeno. Historian and Blue Badge tour guide, Jonathan Schofield, will be putting Manchester’s contribution to technology in context with a short talk and tour and a donation from each ticket will go to StreetSmart which works with Greater Manchester homeless charities.
