Bookable events


Join My Route for a taste of Stratford Road!

As well as working with local partner schools and community organisations on several activities that will be based on the My Route’s heritage themes, Sampad is delivering a series of events that the public can enjoy.

This Autumn we are offering FREE workshops that will give you a special chance to go behind the scenes at some of the most popular restaurants around the Stratford Road area, to hear their stories, learn about their traditions and pick up authentic recipes and tips from their kitchens!


The workshops will be hosted by Al-Faisal’s (Kashmiri Balti), La Favorita (Italian and Asian) and Gian Carlos (Italian) all located around the Stratford Road area in Birmingham.


Al-Faisal’s: Monday 27 October 2014
136-140 Stoney Lane, Birmingham, West Midlands B12 8AQ

La Favorita: Thursday 30 October 2014
72 Alfred Street, Sparkbrook, Birmingham, B12 8JP

 Due to circumstances beyond our control, please note that we are no longer able to offer a workshop at Gian Carlos on 19 November 2014. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.

All workshops run from 2pm to 4pm.
