HDD at Shakedown Carnival Cookout

Music and food are important aspects of carnival weekend, nobody understands this more than our friends at Shakedown who are having a Carnival Cookout on Saturday August 26th. They will be serving up three courses from the BBQ throughout the day and all proceeds from tickets will go to  The Chilli Con Carnery Cookery School for kids with ADHD. We’re looking forward to playing some tunes on the day and sampling their jerk halloumi, and courgette and sweet potato fritters! Full menu and tickets here.
