There are a number of catering outlets inside The Business Design Centre.

Conveniently situated inside the venue and overlooking the show is a cafe serving hot lunches, cold drinks, tea, coffee and a delicious selection of homemade cakes.

Located next door to The Business Design Centre is health food hangout The Skinny Kitchen offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and an incredibly popular brunch.

Step outside the venue and you will find an abundance of cafes, bars and restaurants of suit all tastes. Check out the top 200 restaurants/ cafes and food stores within walking distance of the BDC on Tripadvisor.
(If you wish to buy lunch outside the venue you are welcome to do so; please get a stamp on your hand when you leave so you can be re-admitted.)

You are also welcome to bring a packed lunch from home with you to eat in the venue.

Important Ticket Information – Covid-19

Due to the latest Government rulings in relation to Covid-19, we will be cancelling The Stitch Festival 2021, which was due to take place at the Business Design Centre from 25th – 28th February.

While this is very disappointing for our community of crafters, we are working hard to find lots of digital activity to get involved in until we can come together again.
