Gregg Latchams sponsors Bristol Food Connections and contributes to the ‘Festivals and food culture’ panel

24 May 2017 |

  • The leading law firm will be sponsoring Bristol Food Connections
  • Marti Burgess, Head of Bristol Corporate SME, will contribute to a workshop and panel discussion
  • Over 300 attendees will bring their specialist knowledge to the celebration of food

 Bristol based law firm, Gregg Latchams, is pleased to be sponsoring Bristol Food Connections, a festival that celebrates not only the food that we all enjoy, but the connections that good food builds between people.

Thanks to their sponsorship and the sponsorship of others, the first event on 9th June will include over 300 chefs, food producers, farmers, community projects, and individuals meeting together at Bristol City Hall. They’ll be celebrating food and drink in all its variations, and the people who make them – as well as asking and discussing difficult topics such as can stories change the way we eat, creating a food culture that works for everybody, knowing your food by knowing your farmer, and how to make Bristol an international food destination.

Along with world famous chefs and currently uncelebrated producers, representatives from Refugee Women of Bristol, Coexist Community Kitchen, Birch and the Bristol Cheesemonger, will all be in attendance. Also present will be author of Hungry Cities Carolyn Steel, special envoy to the United Nations Jenny Chandler, and the Head of Tourism for Destination Bristol Kathryn Davies.

Marti Burgess, Head of Bristol Corporate SME at Gregg Latchams, will be contributing to the workshop and panel discussion entitled ‘Festivals and food culture: can a festival build a city’s food culture?’ along with Aine Morris, Creative Director at Bristol Food Connections, and Ed Gillespie, Founder of Futerra. Her experience with Bristol Food Connections and her dedication to outstanding food will make this a fascinating panel to attend at 2:40pm or 3:45pm.

Of course, Gregg Latchams do not restrict their love of food to just this festival. They host a series of client focused events such as a monthly Construction Breakfast, a Curry Club plus ad hoc Law in a Pint Glass and Tech Social gatherings.
