What we do
We offer assistance as required by our user services, principally Category 1 and Category 2 responders, such as Police, Ambulance, Doctors and Local Authorities via the Local Resilience Forums set up by the Civil Contingencies Act (2004). This is often in extraordinary circumstances or extremes of weather, such as heavy snow or flooding. We also attend shows and local events to assist in engaging with the people in our local communities to raise the awareness of our group, what we do and ensure we maintain good relationships with those we volunteer our time for.
Who – Introducing the Circus of Food. A new project managed by the community group, Settle Festival, who have a track record of running successful events over a number of years. This project funded by the National Lottery under the Local Food Grants Fund is to establish an innovative local food project, and provides a fantastic focus for local food activity in a fun environment.
What – The Circus of Food is based around a demonstration trailer and classroom tent which enables chefs, other participating demonstrators and the Circus of Food team to interact fully with spectators, for example as a cookery theatre. It makes locally grown and produced food and drink more attractive and exciting to everyone. Guest chefs, growers and producers showcase their skills and produce by preparing interesting and unusual food and drink via food demonstrations.
The trailer is equipped with commercial cookery equipment, as well as audio and visual equipment to enable large screen and close up viewing of the activities being demonstrated. It also comes with a 100 seater marquee with furniture, which can be added to the front of the stage area, to provide a covered learning and presentation space, so no bad weather problems! All this is illuminated by stage and flood lighting. All the equipment has its own on-board power from generators, so that they can operate remotely and independently from any other infrastructure.
The trailer has been designed in such a way that it can also be used for a multitude of other purposes including a cookery theatre for hire for events, a mobile cookery classroom for schools, and it can be hired out for weddings and private parties or even concerts. To make it really adaptable, all the equipment can be removed to enable it to be used as a stage area.
