Unless it has escaped your notice, the Manchester Food & Drink Festival is taking place this weekend in Cathedral Gardens, kicking off on Thursday 22nd and running all the way until Sunday 2nd October.

To celebrate their nomination as ‘Coffee Shop of the Year‘ at this year’s awards, Factory Coffee will be serving up the ultimate pick-me-up with a viral COFFEE RAVE on Friday 30th September.

Caffeine lovers should head on down to the MFDF Festival Hub at Cathedral Gardens from 12pm – 3pm to enjoy FREE COFFEE from Factory, including free espressos and flat whites. They’ve also teamed up with Rogue Artisan Ice Cream to offer you FREE AFFOGATOS – the Italian dessert where ice cream is “drowned” with a shot of hot espresso.

Local DJ rareBit will be spinning the decks at the rave with the perfect soundtrack for this banging Friday afternoon party.
