Sunday 5 May 2024, 10.30am to 9.30pm, Nottingham.

UK Grain Lab invites people involved and interested in non-commodity grain, Real Bread, microbrewing and more to a day of celebration and planning for the future.

The invitation

'We would like to invite folks in the network to join us in shaping UK Grain Lab as we begin to grow. We will reconnect and celebrate our collective work to democratise, decentralise and diversify the UK grain system.

If you have been to Grain Lab before, expect something a little different. Rather than a series of talks and activities the day will be designed around orientating and anchoring ourselves as a movement imagining a new culture of radical change.

Come and hear what’s been happening within UK Grain Lab since the last big gathering in 2022 and share what you’ve been up to. It will be a day and evening to catch up with each other and share great food and drink.

This event is participatory, we welcome everyone who has an interest and wants to get involved in enriching the movement towards an alternative grain economy in the UK: Brewers, maltsters, bakers, millers, cooks, farmers, plant breeders, artists, shopkeepers, storytellers, scientists, funders and community organisers.'

Book your place

Tickets, which include brunch and 'a feast for dinner' are offered at a range of prices that reflect people's ability to pay.

A request to Real Bread Campaign supporters

Real Bread Campaign coordinator Chris Young said: 'Very sadly, I can't attend. I'd love our supporters - and other people - at the event to explore how the Campaign, UK Grain Lab and the UK's non-commodity grain networks around the UK might work more closely to support and complement each other's work.'
