Now in its fourth year, Taste of the Mailbox will present visitors with a mouth-watering programme of events from expert masterclasses, live demonstrations, a pop-up farmers' market, complimentary sampling and more as the much-anticipated festival returns, bigger and better than ever.

To kick off the weekend of events, Mailbox will welcome some of the region's most loved culinary experts. Birmingham-born chef Brad Carter is set to take residency in the premium Kitchen Gallery to offer visitors an exclusive Michelin standard masterclass on Saturday 3rd August.

Social media sensations Original Flava, brothers Shaun and Craig, will be bringing delicious and authentic Caribbean treats to the centre's Canalside on Saturday 3rd August. Meanwhile, guests on Level 3 will be able to enjoy the sights and smells of the prestigious Ludlow Food Festival from Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th August, as their finest crop of local producers bring a slice of Ludlow and the Welsh Marches to Birmingham.

To celebrate its ever-popular food and drink offering, Mailbox will showcase its most loved bars and restaurants across the weekend with complimentary food sampling and interactive cocktail masterclasses. Expect to taste a delicious selection of Caribbean delights, meaty treats and mouth-watering burgers as well as a refreshing cocktail or two.

Across the three days, a number of flavourful events will take place throughout the centre, including an intimate wine tasting session in Harvey Nichols' striking private dining room on Sunday 4th August. A full programme and an additional line-up of special guests will be announced over the coming weeks.
