From 21st – 25th November Food for Real film festival is taking place at venues across the city. There are two events which might be of particular interest to cyclists…
25 November 2012
from 3pm with Tampopo starting at 4.30pm
Venue: Camp and Furnace
Ok so we’ve mixed up noodles with cycling – why not? You’ll need something tasty to slurp on once you’ve cycled in the wind, rain or shine all day!
Put your best pedal forward and bring your lovely bicycle on down to the coolest cinema venue in the city (Yes you will be able to cycle inside too!). Culturally critical masses will be meeting at the Camp and Furnace for an afternoon where the unlikely union of bikes and noodles will be
A cornucopia of weird and wonderful activities will accompany this afternoon’s feature including vintage short food and cycling films, ‘Pimp my Bike’ cycle decor, bike check-ups with the Bike Doctors from Recycles, noodle-eating, breast-knitting and a feast of popcorn flavours to try.

Tampopo is an off-beat comedy featuring several intersecting stories all related to food. Tsutomu Yamazaki plays Goro, a truck driver who helps a young widow named Tampopo (Nobuko Miyamoto) improve her noodle restaurant. Over the course of the film, the story drifts around, not only following the stories of Tampopo, her son, and Goro, but also a number of customers who come through the diner, including an old woman who insists on squeezing the cheese at a market and a criminal with a food-based kink.
Please note that whilst the early part of this event is family friendly, the main feature at 4.30 carries an 18 certificate and so under 18’s will not be permitted.
FOOD: Hot, steaming bowls of noodle soup, drinks and cakes will be available to purchase (with free miso re-fills!)
Camp and Furnace legendary roasts also available – need to be pre-booked by 20th November – call 0151 708 2890
