Westport Food Festival, 21st - 23rd Sept.
13 August 2012
The second Westport Food Festival takes place from 21st-23rd September and today we unveiled the festival programme with the first ever music video used to promote a festival worldwide that 'stars' the festival participants. The link below shows Food Festival Food!, our version of Food Glorious Food from the movie Oliver!
The song is sung and performed by the ‘stars’ of the Westport Food Festival in a variety of famous Westport locations. The cast includes: beekeepers; chefs; a cheese maker; fish monger; baker; hummus and tapenade maker; barman; restaurant owner, hotel & marketing managers and waiting staff. Forming a thread throughout the performance are members of Westport’s historic town band including jazz musician and Westport legend Larry Hingerton plus six Westport children in their screen debuts.
Please help us spread this great idea by viewing it, making a comment on YouTube if you like it and, in turn, passing on to all of your contacts.
Launched in tandem with Food Festival Food! today is this year’s Westport Food Festival programme that includes many food events unique to Westport, including a: seafood summit on Croagh Patrick; picnic along the Gourmet Greenway food trail; Come Dine with Me Dinner featuring the Westport Chefs and a festival food village at Westport’s Octagon. A business arm to the festival, in association with Mayo County Enterprise Board, will offer idea generation, shared knowledge and showcase how various food-related enterprises achieve business success. The full programme is available on www.westportfoodfestival.ie
Here it is - the first music video ever used to promote a festival starring the ' stars' of the festival.
Many thanks for your 'word of mouse' assistance!
