Whitchurch Food and Drink Festival is this weekend! The third annual festival will descend on Whitchurch Civic Centre for two days from Saturday 28th May 2016. There will be lots of activities for the whole family, children’s cookery area, children’s crafts, outdoor food court and over eighty trade stands with free entry for all! The festival will welcome TV chef and food expert Rosemary Shrager on Sunday 29th May. Rosemary is a talented and versatile chef who loves talking about food as much as she loves cooking. Whilst she is with us Rosemary will complete two live cookery demonstrations on stage and will also judge the festival’s Celebration Cake Competition.
Be sure to visit the Artisan Craft Market in the Bullring which runs alongside the festival, showcasing high quality handmade items, ranging from intricate woodwork and jewellery, locally home-grown plants, vintage inspired gifts to garden sheds and handmade homes for your pets. One of a kind items will be available to purchase.
The Bakkavor Bread Cookery Theatre will be serving a whole host of delights with a packed programme of professional demonstrators including Brian Mellor, of Harthill Cookery School, Whitchurch’s own Diana Beard and star of The Great British Bake Off 2014, James Sherwin and Chris Burt to name but a few!
The festival will once again hold its popular Producer Awards, open to all festival stallholders and town centre food and drink establishments. There are a variety of categories this year ranging from jams and curds to both sweet and savoury baked goods. The coveted gold, silver and bronze certificates. Prior to the event, local businesses will be launching a town centre-wide window display in the run up to the festival, so keep your eyes peeled and watch the High Street turn fanatical about food!
Sit and watch the world go by in Lily’s Secret Pop-Up Vintage Tearoom, serving homemade cake, drinks and sandwiches from outside the Civic Centre. The wacky, wicked team from Whitchurch Blackberry will be joining us with music, dance, crafts and fun.
Lots of tasty and unusual products to try and buy!
There really is something for every palette to enjoy at Whitchurch Food and Drink Festival 2016.
