TV Chef on Menu for Nantwich Food Festival
29th March 2017

Nantwich Food Festival once again welcomes a top TV chef to its food theatre this September as the popular Cheshire event gears up for another record-breaking weekend.

Last year’s festival attracted more than 40,000 visitors who enjoyed diverse food and drink offerings from 200 exhibitors, showcasing delicious recipes from across the country.

Run by dedicated volunteers, the festival is supported by many local and regional companies, including marquee sponsors Mornflake Oats and Cheerbrook amongst others.

Based entirely in the heart of Nantwich town centre, independent shops, historic buildings, music and street entertainment make the market town’s food festival one of the summer’s top attractions.

This year’s headline chef is Candice Brown, the 2016 winner of BBC series The Great British Bake-Off. A lover of everything vintage, the stylish chef will delight fans with her passion for sumptuous, decadent food.

There will be cookery demonstrations by children’s television favourite Katy Ashcroft will entertain the crowds with her high-energy shows.

Across the weekend there will be entertainment, exhibitions and demonstrations, offering something for everyone at this family-friendly celebration of food.

Access to the Nantwich Food Festival is free, with a packed programme of events scheduled to take place from Friday 1 to Sunday 3 September.

You don't need to know all about food as there will be mixed rounds of general knowledge with the odd fact about vegetables or chocolate thrown in!

All proceeds will be shared between St Mary's Church and the Nantwich Food Festival.

So pull a team together and enter by emailing Christine Farrall; or ringing her using the details on the attached poster.
