Nantwich Food Awards


Nantwich Lockdown Awards

Unfortunately we have had to take the difficult decision of cancelling the Nantwich Food Festival 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however in place of the usual Nantwich Food Awards, this year we will be running the Nantwich Food Festival Lockdown Awards.
This year’s awards and categories will be different from previous years, instead celebrating the Nantwich community spirit and the dedication and ingenuity of our local businesses. We want to thank the organisations and individuals who have stepped up to support local residents during this pandemic, as well as promote the businesses who have adapted and gone above and beyond to satisfy customer needs during this difficult time.
