Returning to the dramatic Exeter Castle Courtyard and pretty Northernhay Gardens in the very heart of the city of Exeter, the Festival will include demos from top chefs, workshops, children’s activities and more than 100 artisanal producers from the region in the Food & Drink marquees in Northernhay Gardens selling a range of mouth-watering products from traditional cheeses, meats, preserves and ciders to modern twists on gins, charcuterie, ice-cream, oils, coffee and much more. Visitors to the Festival can enjoy the opportunity to meet the producers and ask them about the food and drink they sell.
Each year, the Festival hosts a number of interactive workshops and food-themed activities for children and adults alike. A dedicated children’s programme includes Fun Kitchen cookery classes, farm animals, story-telling and craft activities. The Festival aims to help children understand more about their food, an awareness of where it comes from and instil a love of cooking. The Darts Farm Taste and Knowledge Teepee’s will once again host a packed schedule of informative and fun workshops, demonstrations and talks on topical food and drink themes.
Exeter Castle Courtyard will be filled with hot food stalls and stands selling local beers, ales and wines. Enjoy a delicious lunch while local musicians take to the stage to entertain visitors.
