Who doesn’t love sitting in the sun and sampling food from some of the best, most delicious food suppliers in the UK?

This year, it’s set to be better than ever with five incredible chefs joining the festival’s inaugural line up to present us with some delicious, sophisticated and creative cuisine.

Not only will there be amazing food stalls to take your fancy, they’ll also be a ‘Celebrity Chef Theatre’ where Saturday Kitchen’s very own Matt Tebbutt will be setting up camp with none other than Marco Pierre White. The chefs will show guests the ropes when it comes to cooking up a storm in the kitchen with their highly anticipated cooking demonstrations and you will also get the opportunity to expand your gastronomic knowledge with Q&A sessions happening throughout the event. Not only will great food be offer, guests will be celebrating the weekend with a drink or two, including some amazing craft beer. Other celebrity chefs making an appearance over the two days will be Mary-Ellen McTague and Ed Baines. The festival is a really great opportunity for visitors and chefs alike to celebrate the vibrant, ever developing food and drink scene.
Access to celebrity chef’s tents will be included in the ticket price and if you’re visiting with the kids they’ll be plenty of fun and interactive activities for them too in the Children’s village. If you fancy a boogie, live DJ sets will be entertaining the crowds on both days as well.
More and more exciting names are being added to the festival’s exhibitor list as the event draws closer and so far names such as Cottonpolis, Proove Pizza, Manchester Gin and Revolution as well as a Prosecco bar – bound to catch the eye of many.
