Past events

Now in its eighth year, the festival with its mix of celebrity chefs, local producers, food stalls and so much more is firmly on the map as a must do day out.

Previous Food Festivals have seen top chefs such as Tom Kerridge, Nadiya Hussain and James Martin, to name a few, cook up a storm in the demo kitchen for foodie fans. This year the festival will offer free cookery demonstrations from Dean Edwards, a firm favourite on ITV’s Lorraine, TV personality Rosemary Shrager and This Morning’s Phil Vickery.

Gloucester Quays


Gloucester Quays is located next to the beautiful Historic Docks of Gloucester – one of the UK’s most inland Shipping Ports and one of Gloucester’s busiest tourist attractions. Filled with Victorian Architecture, Gloucester Docks is the perfect place to enjoy interesting views and learn about Gloucester’s History.

It is shaping up to be an amazing three days with artisan producers, street food, live music and brilliant cookery demonstrations.
