- Midlands based food vendors who offer a range of cuisine are being encouraged to apply
- Neighbourhood Festival Sites will offer people the chance to experience the Games, at seven different community locations across the city
- Each site will be open for two days during the Games which run from 28 July to 8 August
We are excited to welcome caterers offering a diverse range of cultural cuisine that is representative of the Commonwealth to our neighbourhood festival sites this summer.
The sites which are located across the city provide an opportunity for local people to engage with the Games. They will bring together sport and culture and give local people a chance to gather and celebrate the Commonwealth Games with other people from their local community.
The sporting action from the Games will be broadcast on a large screen and a programme of live performances and interactive workshops will be on offer, plus now the organisers of each festival site are on the lookout for vendors to be a part of the local celebrations by offering food and drink to those attending.
Vendors who apply must offer a diverse range of food over the two days that each site is operational. For example, this could include halal dishes, plus a selection of savoury and dessert options that offer flavours from across the Commonwealth.
Companies that apply need to have a four-star food hygiene rating as a minimum and pricing should be appropriate for a community event.
Diandra McCalla, Lead Producer for Neighbourhood Festival Sites said: “This is a great opportunity for local companies to be part of the festival sites that we are staging in communities across Birmingham. These sites will showcase some of the city’s best artists and performers and so we need a culinary offer that meets those same high standards but at a price that’s right for our attendees.”
Midlands based companies who are registered with the National Catering Association can apply now at ncass.org.uk.
Applications can also be accepted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide evidence of all Risk Assessment Methods Statement (RAMS) paperwork and photos of your catering unit.
Due to significant interest in this opportunity the application deadline has now been extended to 12:00 noon on Friday 27 May.
