Now in its eighth year nationally, Foodies Festival has  new events in 2013 including:

  • Chocolate Theatre to showcase the world of chocolate and confectionary 

  • Wine Village, bringing together producers and wine regions from across the world including Shawbury Vintners and Vicomte de Romanet; along with the always popular Drinks Theatre where regular classes and demonstrations are given on by some of the most talented sommeliers and mixologists and drink experts in the UK.  
  • Cocktail Theatre where top mixologists will demonstrate their skills with hands-on classes!  What more could you want? 
  • Lots of shopping - of course -  at the Producers’ Market whilst Homeware Village offers visitors the chance to shop for kitchenware and gadgets.  

  • Also not only will there be the usual entertainments stage but a City Beach where families can chill out on deckchairs with an artisan ice-cream or an afternoon tea whilst children build sandcastles.  Various specialist tea, coffee and fresh juice vendors can be found around the site
