A big thank-you to everyone who joined us for Beats & Eats

Back to News

Now that the dust has settled on the first ever Smithfield event, we wanted to take a moment to thank everyone involved who made Beats & Eats a storming success.

We were delighted to host such a fun, inclusive event here on our site, and were very happy that we – in conjunction with our partners – were able to provide a brilliant slice of good food and culture for people across the Six Towns.

Roughly 300 of you turned out over the course of the night, and we’re hoping that the next event we have on site will be even bigger.

Thank you very much to Stoke-on-Trent BID, Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Sauce Staffordshire, The Sound Kitchen, Created Academy and AUDIO for bringing the event together and helping to make it happen. And of course, thank you to Feast Stoke, whose vision and tenacity masterminded the whole thing!

Thank you also to every single trader that was a part of Beats & Eats, as well as the talented DJs and our yogi, Love & Light Shala. It makes us truly happy to be in a part of the world which is teeming with bright talent and creativity of a fiercely independent nature.

We will be revealing more details very soon of our next tranche of exciting events and placemaking activities, as work continues to forge ahead on site and we remain on-track for completion next year.

You can see below some photos taken on the evening – make sure you say hello via our social media if you can see yourself!
