In addition, across both days, there will be wonderful artisan producers, street food stalls, pop-up pub and obviously yummy foodie sampling, plus:

Chef and Baker Demonstrations…

A myriad of demonstrations on the Magimix main stage will be taking place including Alex Hollywood, Briony May, Chris Wheeler and Jane Devonshire to name just a few! Not to mention book signings and other demonstrations galore on featured stalls.

Live Music…

Enter into the festival vibe with the dedicated live music area celebrating the musical talents of many local artists. The Sunday will also see United Vibe band, including Elliot Horne from Towersey, who went to Lord Williams’s School, taking to the music stage. They appeared in the most recent series of The X Factor, mentored by Robbie Williams and recently supported him at Party in the Park.

More than just food…
