Food Festivals

May is the month to set the tastebuds alight with spring in the air and a whole new raft of craft beers coming through for the summer season. We are visiting a range of venues bringing a range of elements that all add up to fun for foodies and families who just like food and fun. Nothing highbrow, but with clear quality of product shining through, we aim to provide a showcase for local and regional food and drink while at the same time attracting a national and even international offering.

Our season starts in May and now extends throughout the summer and into September.

Pitches are booking up fast for our food and drink festivals, so don't delay in securing your place on what promises to be a most successful set of themed events for 2018.
