Belfast Bred is Back

Kabosh theatre's outdoor food tour returns to offer visitors an immersive taste of the city's history and culinary hot spots

Fusing theatre, history, a walking tour and the food offering of Belfast today, Belfast Bred has long stood as a food tour with a difference. Now in its seventh year, the Kabosh Theatre production returns next week to serve up a unique two and a half hour culinary experience as Northern Ireland continues to celebrate 2016 as the Year of Food and Drink.

In the company of fictional guide Barney, a chef from the RMS Titanic who has spent the last 104 years frozen in an iceberg, participants will discover the city's rich heritage in addition to first-hand, fascinating and hilarious insight into the food that Belfast was built on.

Along the way those in attendance will sample the cuisine on offer from Sawers Deli, Mourne Seafood, the John Hewitt and McHugh’s Bar. The tour ends at the world famous St Georges Market – which first opened its doors before Barney even boarded the luxury liner in 1912.

Paula McFetridge, Artistic Director of Kabosh, said: 'Belfast Bred always goes down a treat, there's no better way to get a taste of the city. Local audiences and tourists alike love it.'

Sheila Dillon, host of Radio 4's Good Food Programme, described it as 'a revelation - a wonderful tour that will transform your perception of Belfast' while an audience member from 2015 urged: 'If you only take one tour in Belfast, let this be it.'

Tours take place every Friday and Saturday from July 15h to September 10. Tickets are priced £22 and can be purchased from the Belfast Welcome Centre. Apple users can also take advantage of the Belfast Bred app, available to download free from the App Store.
