A buzz about the Slow Food Festival
FAMILIES are guaranteed a fun day out at the Slow Food Festival in Derry with a host of activities over the weekend (October 12 – 13) to keep all the kids busy little bees.
An urban bee-keeping stall in Guildhall Square will have them swarming around with members of Derry and District Bee Keeping Association on hand to share their expertise as well as selling their wares.

The urban bee-keepers stall is just one way that organisers of the Slow Food Festival are introducing younger visitors to finding out where food comes from and the importance of clean, green and fair local produce.
Expect street animation, a kidz farm, kids’ workshops including a Sensory Fantastic Food Factory Lab and learn how to make ancient Irish flatbread as well as plenty more to help the next generation of Slow Food aficionados have a full menu of activities to help them work up a healthy appetite.
Any families wanting to take their food knowledge to the next level may be interested in signing up to the Wild Cookery Experience which introduces children to making scrumptious snacks over an outdoor fire. Children from 3 - 16 years can enjoy ingredients from the Walled Garden in St Columb’s Park to make a munch with a difference. The newly restored Walled Garden provides simple organic herbs and flavoursome ingredients to help kids design their own campfire food. The experience is supported by a Far and Wild cooking expert with a list of potential menu items for you to conjure up.
