TASTY dishes from around the world will be on offer when an International Food Fair comes to Swindon next week.

Connecting Communities will be hosting the event at the Steam Museum on Saturday, June 25 from 11.30am to 4pm.

There will be food stalls with top-notch cuisine from 14 countries, along with desserts, Henna tattoos, face painting, a bouncy castle, games, and other fun activities.

The cutlery and crockery used on the day will be biodegradable.

Proceeds from the event will be split between Brighter Futures' dementia appeal, the One Nation charity's international water projects, and an orphanage.

The dementia appeal has an initial target of raising £33,000 to take steps towards improving Great Western Hospital's environment for people living with dementia.

The first phase will focus on replacing clocks around the hospital with dementia-friendly clocks and to purchase a Reminiscence Interactive Therapy Activities machine.

The food fair was first held at Steam in 2019 but the pandemic prevented it from returning.

Last time, more than 1,000 people visited the food fair. It raised £1,250 for Brighter Futures and supported Mind and the Penny Appeal.
