Slow Food Norwich is always pleased to be involved in promoting good local food in Norfolk and East Anglia but we also promote produce from other countries throughout the world that are made by other Slow Food Convivia members.
So we have teamed up with Olivaverde are very pleased to be holding one of our promotional and workshop events together with a networking evening at a great venue, Maida Hill Place in west London on August 21st. Part of the evening will be given over to a talk about the new Slow Food regions in the UK, this has been a major step forward for local groups with the recent launch of Slow Food England, Slow Food Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The evening will also be promoting our new Slow Food olive oil schools that we are setting up in the Le Marche region of Italy and also on the Island of Malta with the help of Slow food members in both countries.
This beautiful venue is in west London ia an important part in the regeneration of this area of London, and is close to both the popular and world famous Portobello Road Market and also the very exclusive areas of Little Venice, Maida Vale and Queens Park.
This makes it makes a perfect place to hold some of our London based events when we co operate with Slow Food London and other Slow Food groups, we also hold many of our events in East Anglia as well as at other venues in London over the summer and autumn.
Maida Hill Place was only opened less than two years ago and has already become a popular venue which is available for hire for food, music and art based events as well as becoming a well known film location and a centre for the local community in this part of west London.
The centre has a full professional audio and lighting system and is popular with musicians and artists who wish to hold concerts and shows in this very well equipped contemporary space.
