A feast of fun at the festival

The bustling festival takes place on Westbridge Park on the edge of town; offering foodies the chance to ‘Eat, Drink, Shop, Learn & Enjoy’. Artisan food & drink stalls from far and wide ply their wares in the Gourmet Marquee whilst global street food traders offer food ‘on the go’ for all tastes; Staffordshire brewers are out in force in the ‘beer garden’ while a fabulous gin and cocktail bar offers something for those with more refined tastes. There’s the chance to get ‘hands on’ with food in pre-booked Culinary Masterclasses on a range of topics, you can pick up tips from the pros in the Demonstration Kitchen, with live cookery demos from top local chefs on the hour, every hour, and listen to passionate producers wax lyrical in the Talks & Tastings Tent. A great line-up of bands keep the crowds entertained all weekend, whilst families will have plenty to occupy them with free kids’ cookery classes, Big Top circus shows from Panic Family Circus and pay-as-you-go crafts, face painting and other activities.
