This Spring Bank Holiday see the lovely Weston Park in Shropshire host the Great British Food Festival for the first time, the event over three days, 27th-29th May promises to be a foodie feast.
The line-up includes over hundred best of British producers and street food vendors, celebrity chef demos, talks, kids cookery lessons, great live music, a ‘Cake Off’ competition and ‘Men v Food’ challenges.
The popular ‘Men v Food’ challenges take centre stage at noon, 2pm and 3.30pm with three different challenges each day, Men Vs Meat, then Men Vs Heat and Pairs Vs Treat.
The entry fee is £5 and goes to a local charity. Tim Rushton, host of the Men V Food Challenges said ‘they are really popular and are a good watch with the crowd cheering the contestants on.’ The meat challenge sounds tough, Tim added ‘ Basically it’s 6minutes to each as much sausage as you can! Once they have eaten all they can they have to down a pint of cider within the time limit, otherwise their entry doesn’t count. The winner is the person who has eaten the most sausage, drank the pint all within the time! We had one man in Yorkshire eat seventy nine inches!’
There is entertainment for all the family throughout the bank weekend, including kid’s cookery lessons, free circus skills, Free kids crafts as well as some children’s rides. There will be fantastic live music throughout the day with a play list packed full of top local bands and artists, so you can do some shopping, grab some food and then have a well earned relax with a local beer) listening to some great live entertainment.
The perfect recipe for a fun, foodie day out for the whole family. Seewww.greatbritishfoodfestival.com for tickets and more info.
