Get set for Nantwich Food Festival
10th August 2017

One of the region’s favourite events takes place this weekend when the Nantwich Food Festival kicks off with organisers promising a spectacular feast of entertainment for all the family.

Once again backed by big-name sponsors such as Mornflake, Bentley Motors, County Insurance, Hall Smith Whittingham, Cheerbrook, Aga, Engenie and Nantwich Town Council, it’s a celebration to make Cheshire proud.

Headline chef Candice Brown will bring her unique “Bake-Off” style to the festival with a series of cooking demonstrations from her recently launched book, Comfort: Delicious Bakes and Family Treats.

Clover Hudson will compare a host of other chefs in the Aga-Bentley Food Theatre, including home economist Claire Bassano and Luca Rizzotto from Romazzino restaurant in Nantwich.

Shane Guildford from South Cheshire College’s award-winning academy restaurant will also take to the hob to serve up some culinary delights.

Returning by popular demand is the high-energy show by CBeebies favourite Katy Ashworth, sure to get children involved with her captivating and magical storytelling.

This year there’s even more on offer, with Hall Smith Whittingham’s Family FunZone marquee staging dance and circus workshops, music from RedShift Radio, traditional games, crazy bubbles, face-painting fun and much more.

A BBQ grill-off sponsored by Cheerbrook Farm Shop will test amateur chefs on the coals, while a vegetable-themed cake competition will judge the most creative cooks.

The Chilli cook-off is sure to raise the temperature and could see the Nantwich heat winner jet off to the USA for the World Championships!

The Nantwich Food Festival grows in popularity and reach every year, and the market town streets will be packed with over 40,000 visitors over the late-summer weekend.

Well over 200 exhibitors from Cheshire and across the country bring fresh produce and unusual new recipes to the festival’s marquees.

Visitors can enjoy tasters, purchase their favourite food and drink products, and enjoy delicious cuisines in the bustling food courts that are located across the centre of Nantwich.

The Mr Dabber Town Trail also returns, with great prizes to be won. Visitors can collect entry forms at the Festival Office on the main square.

Entry to the Nantwich Food Festival marquees and food displays is free, with a varied programme of events, music and entertainment spread across three exciting days.

The festival takes place from Friday 1 to Sunday 3 September.
