Taste of Science at the National Space Centre

Returning for another year this month, the National Space Centre are holding their Taste of Science event, the perfect combination of foodie and geeky, because who doesn’t like a food fair with a science bitches twist?

The event is on the 11th November from 7pm until 11pm. Your ticket costs just £10 and includes entry to the Space Centre (a ticket normally costs £14 on its own!), as well as access to tastings, demonstrations, workshops and competitions. You’ll also be able to access the indoor food court, and marketplace of foodie stalls. Finally, there will be live music to keep you entertained, so it sounds like a great night out, as well as a good opportunity to indulge in some early Christmas shopping (if you can resist eating all of your goodies before you wrap them!)

Predictably, I’m pretty interested in the Libation Lounge, where Brewklopedia will be hosting a beer tasting, followed on by Charlotte Wood from Manhattan34 giving a cocktail masterclass. I have it on exclusive, and very good authority, that this may well involve a gin which has been to space! Actual space!

The Bee Farmer

The marketplace will see a great variety to stallholders too, including Geology Girl Rocks, who will also hold a science recipe session in the demonstration kitchen,  Ridiculously Rich and their luxury handmade cakes, The Bee Farmer and a whole lot more.

Pretty unmissable stuff for foodies of all shades, if you ask me!
