Screen Bites, Braintspuddle dinner and opera in July 2019 for 90 guests.

'This is the second year we have worked with Ian Bloomfield as The Galloping Maestro. Screen Bites is a food film festival held in Dorset each year and we have invited Ian to host and sing at our fund raising events. Each time the food he has prepared has been delicious and the songs have captivated our audiences. This year several folks returned for a second time, travelling quite a distance, they had had so much fun!

Well done Ian, we are planning our next joint event already!'
