Mayfield is excited to announce the return of Grub Food Fair to their summer home!

From 4 May Grub will return to an enhanced and improved outdoor space in the Courtyard, Baring Street – the same location it occupied last summer –offering a fantastic array of street food and drink to suit every taste. Significant further investment in the Courtyard area includes the creation of a decked area; a bigger covered seating space; an upgraded and expanded bar area, and also extra room for traders.

James Heather, development director at U+I in Manchester, said: “We are continuing to evolve our successful partnership with Grub and are passionate about re-establishing Mayfield as a vibrant place for everyone to come and enjoy.

“We have made great progress in the 11 months since we opened up at Baring Street and started to bring this forgotten part ofthe city back to life. As well as Grub, we have opened our new U+I office here, created the urban garden with our partners from the Green Health Alliance and most recently launched Mayfield & Co, the new co-working space.”

Jason Bailey, co-founder of Grub, said: “We had a smashing first year at Mayfield, it’s an utterly tremendous space to work with.  Grub was a touch more popular than we anticipated last year and so we’ve increased the covered seating area and nearly doubled the size of the bar.

“The bigger bar means that we can more than double the number of cask beers available whilst pouring our amazing house beers from Runaway Brewery, Atom Beers, Magic Rock Brewing and Squawk on top of all the best local and Northern beers we can get our hands on.”

Grub’s summer season kicks off at noon on 4 May with a delicious lineup featuring: Gravy Train; Howlin Tacos, Parmstar, The Ottomen and Drizzle City Bakes, and will be open every week at the following times:

Fridays: 12noon to 10pm

Saturdays: 12noon to 10pm

Sundays: 12noon to 6pm

(where the UK’s first exclusively vegan weekly street food event #PlantPoweredSundays will continue!)

Meanwhile, Fairfield Social Club on Temperance Street, which was Grub’s winter home at Mayfield, will be used as an events space with a number of weddings, exhibitions, screenings, gigs and business conferences already booked.
