Returning for it's fifth year, Shrewsbury Food Festival gathers over 200 artisanal food & drink producers to showcase Shropshire’s love of fine food and drink. With live music, cookery classes and the general opportunity to have a go at all kinds of activities you’d never normally think of, Shrewsbury Food Festival is a great draw for the whole family.
Shrewsbury Food Festival encourages everyone to get involved - no matter what their age or experience - and learn something new; from rolling sushi, to roasting ingredients over an open fire. The FBC Mamby Bowdler Cookery School will run throughout the festival weekend and focuses on making dishes that are quick and easy, so everyone will leave with an increased recipe range, not to mention some extra knife skills. Expect plenty of big names to bring their culinary skills to the Wenlock Spring Chef Demonstration Stage.
Shropshire’s biggest festival is getting even bigger. Never one for standing still, this year sees some exciting developments such as a new craft area - which will be filled with potters, glass blowers, artists, and photographers - plus an opportunity for the more adventurous to learn bushcraft skills. Foraging anyone?
Katie’s Kids Kitchen will be offering classes to a range of young budding chefs. And, if cooking is not quite to their taste, the huge children’s area will keep them occupied for hours. It is full of free activities such as the climbing wall, a creative area, a “Have a Go” music tent - plus an onsite crèche, allowing parents to have some uninterrupted shopping time!
Just as London is celebrating its own Food Month throughout June, so too is Shrewsbury. The town has far too much talent to showcase over one weekend, so around 30 restaurants in Shrewsbury will take part in the Monks Estate Agents Lunch Club. Lunch is offered for £5, encouraging people to try somewhere new. This runs throughout June and is the perfect festival appetiser.
Festival is held on grass but is fairly flat. Carers enter for free with a registered disabled person. Disabled parking in town centre.
