Food & Drink

The Festival of Slow Music will be running a bar in the Mechanics’ Institute during most of the festival, including the Open Rehearsals, so do come and enjoy a nice beverage with us, and maybe a few nibbles also. 

In addition, there are numerous cafes, restaurants and bars in the city – using the resources above will assist in finding whatever you require, but also feel free to ask Festival staff and/or other Festival goers for their tips.

If you do require any further information, please contact the Festival and we will endeavour to help in whatever way we can.
