Chef Demonstrations in the Festival Cookery Theatre is an absolute must-see for foodie fans learning to cook simple meals to those who enjoy preparing impressive dishes for entertaining dinner guests.

Plenty to keep the whole family entertained.
  4. The iconic Dart’s Farm Teepees will host a series of workshops, talks and tastings from a whole host of local, artisan, traditional food and drink producers over the weekend. From sausage-making with the Darts Farm master butchers to pizza making in the wood fired oven, hungry festival goers will be entertained and educated by the industry experts whilst enjoying tasty bites undercover.
