That’s right – our Celebrity Cookery Theatre is FREE to attend with plenty of seating and viewing for those standing too.
See the recipes created by Michelin star chef Dan Doherty, how you can ‘Eat Well For Less’ with Chris Bavin, what it takes to be a Masterchef champion with Jane Devonshire (who will also be talking hassle free gluten free), and why TV actress Gaynor Faye loves cooking Yorkshire food.
They will also be joined by Andrea Wallace and Teresa Bovey so its a packed schedule with something for everyone.
We’re the biggest event of this kind in the region with around 150 Food and Drink Producers showcasing everything from apple ciders to spicy oils, gooey brownies to zingy sauces – and absolutely everything in between.
The largest group is in the Food & Drink marquee where you can try and buy a whole menu of products. The rest are around the main show field.
Visit our Street Food Market where you can sit and enjoy live music while you enjoy a tasty lunch and a theist quenching tipple.
The proof of the pudding may be in the eating but for many its learning how to get the best out of your food and drink that is the most satisfying.
The School of Artisan Food hosts a Cookery School for both adults and children, teaching you how to make sausages, cheese, butter and ice-cream as well as meat and beer tasting (that ones adults only!).
Our brand new Gin School showcases seven different Gins, how to mix them with different flavours, make cheeky cocktails – and you even get homework in the form of a goody bag. Enrol soon though as the classes are nearly full. Get involved and take home more than a full tummy.
You won’t have to worry about the little ones getting bored as there is plenty for them to do at the Festival of Food and Drink.
As well as Cookery lessons at The School of Artisan Food for those over six years old (which are booked on a first come, first served basis, there is also archery, laser clay shooting, axe throwing (which even Dad can have a go at), sand art, forest school, a Ferris wheel, carousel, bungee trampoline and much more.
Despite its title, the Festival is about much more than Food and Drink. Visit the Beautiful Things marquee to find exquisite homewares and gifts (including some for your four legged friends who are also welcome to attend as dogs are allowed).
Stock up on Christmas presents for the Book People who will have all the latest cookery books that can be signed by our celebrity chefs.
Enjoy fantastic live music from John Adams, Alex Taylor, Joe Strange, and The Burgundys, bringing the true Festival vibe – just no crowd surfing please!
