« NewsOpportunities for Food and Drink Businesses to Take part in the Taste of Nottingham Campaign

Our annual Food and Drink campaign will take place from 21st to 27th September and will focus on promoting the range and quality of Nottingham’s food and drink offer.

Following feedback from last year this campaign will now last for one week, rather than a fortnight, and will promote offers, events and £10 menus to encourage visitors to come into the city and try somewhere new.

This campaign will once again include a food and drink market, and following feedback from last year, this will take place in conjunction with the Great Notts Show on Old Market Square.

We will once again be producing a Food and Drink magazine and will be distributing this throughout the city and via mail drop to homes. This will be written by our copywriters to include a selection of BID businesses.


Offers, Events and £10 Menus
We are looking for any offers, £10 menus or events that businesses would like to put on. These will be promoted on our website, on our social media, via email to our VIP subscribers and on our app. We will also use push notifications to prompt app users to access this information.

Food and Drink Market – Thursday 24th – Sunday 27th September
We will be working with the Great Notts Show in Old Market Square to offer BID businesses the chance to have a stall in a separate, branded area near the Brian Clough statue. This will be free of charge, but a refundable deposit will be taken to secure the booking. There will also be opportunities to put on a demonstration, competition or tasting session in the demo kitchen which we will have in this area.

Write a Guest Blog
We are looking for businesses to write guest blogs which we will publish on our website and promote through our channels. This is a chance for people to find out more about the restaurants in the city and is a chance for businesses to talk about an area of food and drink that is important to them.

Provide a Prize for the 10am Treat
Following the success of the 10am Treat during the independents campaign, we will once again be running a series of competitions announced via our app and social media every day at 10am, giving people the chance to win a prize from one of Nottingham’s food and drink establishments.


Please fill in the form below to indicate how you would like to take part in the campaign. Some opportunities, such as the market, are on a first come, first served basis, however we will do our best to accommodate as many businesses as possible.
