Coventry BID is thrilled to announce that Spice Girl, Melanie C, and M People’s Heather Small have been confirmed as the headline acts at Coventry’s “Big Foodie Weekend”, on Friday 23rd July and Saturday 24th July.
The pop superstars will be joined by artists Karen Harding, Rozalla, Shena, Booty Luv, Big Brovaz, Katherine Ellis and DJ Paul Morrell, bringing the party atmosphere to the Food Festival throughout the weekend.
Melanie C will be leading the line-up on the Friday evening, showcasing her DJing skills with an exclusive set. Melanie will be joined by R&B singer/songwriter Karen Harding (‘Say Something’) 90’s pop sensation Rozalla (’Everyody’s Free’ ); legendary disco and house vocalist, Shena, and Coventry’s very own DJ, Paul Morrell.
Heather Small – the unmistakable voice of M People – will be the headline act on the Saturday evening. Naughties acts Big Brovaz and Booty Luv are also set to perform, along with Katherine Ellis (Freemasons vocalist), rounded off by another blistering set from Paul Morell.
Following the huge success of the Food Festival in 2019, where the city welcomed thousands* of additional visitors into the centre, the Coventry BID team is on track to make this year’s event bigger and better than ever – so much so, that they’ve re-named it as the “Big Foodie Weekend” due to the scale of entertainment on offer! Since the official announcement of its return last month, there has been a great reaction and spaces are filling up fast.
Running from Friday 23rd – Sunday 25th July, the Big Foodie Weekend aims to host the largest selection of artisan food producers in the region. TV Celebrity chefs, Theo Randall and Lesley Waters, will be leading cooking demonstrations throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday.
There will also be dedicated gluten-free and vegan produce, and visitors will be able to eat their way around the world with stunning street food and some of the finest producers of cheese, chutneys, eggs and sweet treats – all served with pop-up bars, cocktails, demonstrations and, of course, live music.
