Northern Restaurant & Bar trade show calls for registration

The Northern Restaurant & Bar, returns to Manchester Central for its 11th year.

The two day event on March 12 and 13, will welcome trade-only exhibitors and visitors including brewers, hoteliers, publicans, catering suppliers, chefs, restaurateurs and bartenders from across the north of England.

Show highlights include – Meet the Mentor, the celebrated Chef Live cookery theatre, sponsored by Inka Grill, that will host some of the UK’s most renowned chefs including Aiden Byrne of the Church Green, Tim Bilton of the Butchers Arms, Ben Spalding of Roganic, Dave Mooney of the Lord Binning Pub & Kitchen and Mary-Ellen McTague of Aumbry.

This year’s event will place greater emphasis on individual hospitality sectors with tailored features such as the new Meet the Mentor sessions which will give visitors the chance to meet face-to-face with some of the industry’s success stories, experts and entrepreneurs.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to participate in tutored wine, beer and coffee tastings at the Grape, Grain & Bean theatre, with wine tastings by Matthew Clark from Hallgarten Druitt and Vintage Roots wine merchants, plus beer demonstrations from the Innis & Gunn and Black Hole breweries.

For bartenders looking to learn new techniques and skills, the Liquor Theatre will be the drinks hub of the show where Tom Sneesby and Jody Monteith from Manchester’s The Liquorists, will lead a programme of cocktail master classes, competitions and tastings.

Northern Restaurant & Bar’s event director, Andy Clayfield, said: “This year’s show is all about honing in on specific hospitality sectors and providing tailored sessions to meet individual needs. From skills master classes and training to one-to-one question and answer sessions with sector experts, exhibitors and visitors alike will have the opportunity to grow and develop their trade.”

The show takes place on March 12 and 13 to register – now.
