10am – 5pm daily
Dogs ARE Allowed
We don’t mind you bringing along your dogs but ask that you take care and pick up your poop! We are a Food & Drink Festival so we ask that you take extra care to clean up after your dog. We are also a family show. Dogs will not be allowed into the Cookery Theatre or Main Food & Drink Marquee – these areas are Assistance Dogs only.
Our amazing producers and exhibitors have so many great things to buy but the signal for card machines and technology in the forest is limited. The event field is surrounded by trees and the signal is intermittent. Make sure you don’t miss out on anything you might want to buy… All our exhibitors take cash!
Whatever the weather come along! It’s England so we know how to deal with the weather. We are prepared, as the Festival of Food & Drink has a huge main marquee with over 70 exhibitors inside, plus marquee’s for Beautiful Things, School of Artisan Food Cookery School and Cookery Theatre, lots of great companies and activities around the main field and weather cover close to Street Food, catering, bars and cocktails! We are ready! Are you? Rain or shine!
