After years of decline, is the High Street making a come-back? A new wave of young and young-at-heart entrepreneurs are rediscovering traditional skills like brewing, preserving and fishmongery and risking everything to start small scale businesses.

Find out what it takes to throw in the towel, start over and join a growing army of artisan food and drink makers in 2016.

Panelists Luke Harding – owner of The Waiting Room – who is an artist turned restaurateur and brewer; Bev Stephenson – ex-journalist and now chocolatier; Kirsty Cruikshank who swapped the civil service for fishmongery, and Gareth Kyle who quit a career in banking to train as a chef – all tell their stories and answer your questions.
