Forest Showcase Food Festival

1st October 2017


Forest Showcase Food Festival  

A celebration of food, music & art

blue-pig-logojpgThe Forest Showcase Food & Drink Festival is back in the Speech House Hotel grounds on Sunday 1st October 2017..

The recipe for the weekend? ……..well take over 100 top local and artisan producers, a big serving of stunning hot food, add a dash of real ale and wine, interesting talks, parent & child cookery lessons and lots of children’s activities, top chef demos, stir in a competition or two with lashings of excellent live music,  and arts & crafts, mix together to make a lovely foodie family day out.

Each year we bring you a wealth of free cookery demonstrations designed to get you cooking, with hints, tips and secrets from the experts. This year we are delighted to welcome our top local chefs and guests, all demos are free (as part of your admission ticket) to enter.

There are also regular Artisan Foodie talks and cookery workshops for you to get involved with!

The Forest Showcase Food & Drink Festival has attracted lots of producers showcasing the best in local, seasonal and speciality food and drink. It’s a great opportunity to get a real taste of the best of the Forest of Dean & surrounding areas – sample, enjoy and buy.

With Great Britain’s amazing mix of cultures and cuisines we thought it would be a shame to overlook some more exotic elements – so you can try Persian, Indian, Mexican as well as pulled pork, prime steak, and the best local burgers and sausages, for those with more traditional tastes!

After you’ve done your foodie shopping, sit out enjoying tasty hot food, a refreshing drink (or two), with great live music in the stunning surroundings.

The perfect recipe for a fun, foodie day out for the whole family.

Ticket Prices: Adults £5, U18’s £2. U5’s free. Family Ticket £12 ( 2 adults/up to 3 children)
