Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council is embracing the new spring season with the launch of its first food initiative aimed at encouraging people to explore the array of high-quality eateries and restaurants on their doorstep.
A Department for Communities and Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council-funded initiative, Taste the Borough will run throughout the month of March in each of the Boroughs towns – Antrim, Ballyclare, Crumlin, Glengormley and Randalstown. Everyone is encouraged to try something (or somewhere) new, to embrace the onset of Spring, and to enjoy a feast for the senses that is not to be missed.
As well as unique offers from participating restaurants, there will be a whole range of special events and activities for children and adults including food trails, masterclasses, taste events, music plus much more.
“On behalf of Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council I am delighted to launch our first food tourism initiative Taste the Borough and we thank Department for Communities for their support,” said Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council John Smyth.
“This is a great opportunity to showcase the many fantastic eateries and restaurants across the borough. We hope that people from the Borough, and beyond, will avail of the offers running throughout March, participate in the range of events on offer and travel across the borough to explore and discover its delights.”
