“Jonathan, my business partner in Big Feed lives overlooking the park and we have always thought this wonderful tree-lined street would provide such a stunning backdrop for an event of this type.”
Jonathan Stipanovsky of Big Feed said: “We’ve been long-term friends and collaborators with Mark and his team at Melting Pot.
“We pull together the very best in street food from around the world and they do exactly the same thing in terms of music, so the partnership works really well.
“We have also worked closely with Mini Manoeuvres for many years, and they consistently deliver the very best experience for kids so we are thrilled they’re part of our event also.”
“Mini Manoeuvres will have face painters, balloon modellers, arts and craft areas, great DJs and live performers all included in the ticket price.”
Mark MacKechnie of Melting Pot said: “Everyone at Melting Pot is delighted to be working with the Big Feed crew and also our friends at Mini Manoeuvres.
“Everyone is bringing something special to the table and I can’t wait to see the results. You couldn’t ask for more with the event location – this is an event at the heart of the West End that has something for everyone.
“From a Melting Pot perspective, we’ll make sure everyone is on the dancefloor at the Bandstand until close.”
