June Food and Drink Events

The British summer starts here and if the forecasts are to be believed Britain is going to be having a 6 week heat wave. No one wants to be sat inside on a lovely day so it’s a great time for café and restaurant owners as people are out on the streets. For takeaway owners it’s a great time to get your name at the forefront of people’s minds as people don’t want to be cooking at home.

Cooksmill bring you loads of great opportunities in this month’s food and drinks event guide. For business owners there are celebrations such as Father’s Day and National Picnic Week that offer great marketing opportunities. There are festivals and tasting events to get out in the sunshine and either have a stall yourself, get some inspiration or just spend some quality time with friends and family.
