Macbeth at Tobacco Factory Theatres

3rd September – 20th September
Tobacco Factory Theatres

flyer design for macbeth theatre production at Tobacco Factory TheatresThe Better Food Company is proud to support Tobacco Factory Theatres as it stages this production.

Filter’s new version of Macbeth fuses Shakespeare’s corrosive, psychological thriller about ambition, power, witchcraft and sanity with innovative sound and music to take you on a strange, funny and scintillating journey to the epicentre of the “heat-oppressed brain”. Filter’s irreverent and contemporary recreations of the classics – Caucasian Chalk Circle, Twelfth Night and A Midsummer Night’s Dream – have gone down a storm in Bristol, the UK and across the world in the past few years.

Managing Director Phil Haughton says: “Like Tobacco Factory Theatres, Bristol’s independent and organic retailer, Better Food, strike their own path, in this case all the way to North Street, with delight and pride, to sponsor this fantastic production of Macbeth.”

 

Awesome Autumn 2014 

18th September – 18th August

To celebrate the best in local and organic food, we swing into Autumn with a series of free events, called Awesome Autumn, to herald the change of season.

Events include opportunities for customers to meet local and artisan producers, talk about why organic farming matters, and celebrate the 4th birthday of the Better Food Clifton store.

Thursday 18th September
Dirty Business – a farmer’s story
From 6.30pm, St Werburgh’s Café, Free event for all
Café serving Mezze style food, plus beer and wine
Booking:

Garth Clarke is the farm manager at the hugely successful Yeo Valley organic farm in Blagdon, but he started his career as a sceptic.  His straight talking, totally unpretentious and very practical views reveal his journey as a farmer and the reasons for his change of heart.

In a relaxed evening hosted by Phil Haughton, MD of The Better Food Company, Garth will be with us ‘in conversation’ with Lee Holdstock, Soil Association’s Trade Relations Manager.  Garth’s story is exemplary of why we believe organic is so important and relevant to farming today and the future.
