First ever British Food Festival to be held at Leeds Castle

Leeds Castle is to host its first ever Fantastic British Food Festival in its grounds from September 12th to 14th.

The 900-year-old castle surrounded by its majestic moat, 500 acres of beautiful parkland and formal gardens will host an exciting extravaganza for foodies and families.

More than 70 food and drink producers, including artisan bakers, local micro-breweries and pulled pork barbecues will set up their stalls in the castle grounds.

A food & drink theatre will feature a range of cookery demonstrations, children’s cookery workshops and talks from a variety of food and drinks experts.

Roaming entertainers, bake-off competitions and a chance for would-be cookery presenters to compete on the ‘Open Mic Cookery Demos’ means there will be something for all foodies in this stunning stately setting.

The event is being organised in conjunction with Fantastic British Food Festivals who are creating similar events in towns and National Trust properties across the UK.

Entry to the food festival will be included in the normal entry fee for Leeds Castle – £19 for adults or a ‘Key to the Castle’ ticket for £24 allowing entry for a whole year, tickets for children from 4 – 15 years are £13.50.

Potential visitors, exhibitors or sponsors of the event can contact the organisers on info@fantasticbritishfoodfestivals.com.
