Broadsheet Pairs Up with Ballarat City for Pop Up Restaurant

Ballarat locals need no assurance that their town has got the goods when it comes to quality food and produce, however, outsiders may need a little more convincing.

In light of proving what Ballarat has to offer, Ballarat Regional Tourism, numerous venues and Broadsheet have teamed up to put together a pop-up restaurant.

The event will be launched exclusively to social media influencers (including the likes of Holly Titheridge (@_hollyt), Matthew Deutscher (@oakandink), Melanie Lionello (@naturally_nutritious), and Jackson Thomas (@jaxthomasmusic)) via a personalised food experience throughout the day.

Following the launch the pop up at Housey Housey will host various other food operators from Ballarat in putting on a Sunday roast from May 29 – June 19. The full run-down of events are below.
