The festival took place over two days and featured artisan producers from all over the UK displaying their wares.

Aspriring chefs were given the chance to learn from local and celebrity chefs, including Levi Roots in two ‘cookery theatres’, as well as try out a range of real ales and enjoy entertainment on the music stage.

The festival’s ‘food halls’ hosted a line-up of local and regional speciality food and drink producers, including meats, artisan baking and micro-breweries plus cheese, sausages and gourmet pies.
