Miller Research Lab


Please Note: These events are free, but you must book a place online in advance.

Join us for the start of something new and exciting, as we launch our youth initiative (16-25 year olds) at the Miller Research Lab, with four interactive sessions throughout the Saturday. We have a whole host of experts in food and sustainability lined up to discuss current priorities, ideas and initiatives, as well as provide advice on starting a career in food.

Young people have recently led the fight to create a more sustainable and just way of life, bringing much needed passion and urgency. We want to harness that energy and place the current food system under the microscope, to look at the latest ideas in food system change, hear and collect what you have to say, and to plan and inspire more action for change.  It’s time to speak out and act up.  See you at the LAB.

PLEASE NOTE: The Miller Research Lab will now take place in the Community Room of Abergavenny Community Hub and Library (upstairs in the Town Hall).

All Food Lab attendees will receive a FREE stroller ticket to enjoy the rest of the festival.  Attendees aged between 16-25 are also invited to join our Youth Panel, which provides the opportunity to participate on the day, gain specialist experience, and the chance to organise next year’s youth event!

Join our Youth Panel

If you’re interested in being part of our Youth Panel, you can sign up while booking your place for any of our Lab Sessions. You only need to sign up to the panel once.

Follow the links below to find out more about the individual discussions – attendees are welcomed to reserve specific sessions – or even join us for the full day.

Whilst this is a FREE event, it is ticketed. We politely ask our attendees to reserve tickets as this event has a limited capacity, and we want to ensure enough space for all those that plan to join us!
