What's it about?
Definitely one for the diary is Cottingham Food and Drink Festival, returning to the East Yorkshire location on Sunday 16th September 2018.
Returning for the sixth year running, the event will feature stalls in Market Green, King Street and Hallgate for this one-day foodie extravaganza.
Over one hundred of the best regional food and drink producers will nestle alongside tasty street food, cookery demonstrations and a children’s fun fair. This year’s cookery demos include TV chef and Yorkshire lad Brian Turner.
Councillor Helen Green, who has run the event since its inception, said: “This is a fantastic event for Cottingham and I am delighted that it has become such a huge attraction.
“This year I am taking a break from organising duties and have asked The Market Managers to run the festival. They have a great track record in managing similar events, so I know it will be in safe hands.”
Caroline Anderson of the Market Managers said: “It was a privilege to be asked to run such a high profile event and we jumped at the chance. Over the years it has developed into a top-flight food festival and we will do our best to build on its success.
“The festival attracts many thousands of visitors to Cottingham which is a tremendous boost for the village. We are largely keeping to the winning format of previous years, while we are hoping for some new features, so it’s well worth coming along. We have a fantastic selection of stalls and we can guarantee a great day out.
”We would also like to thank the sponsors, EY Events, Graham & Rosen Solicitors and DM Keith (Skoda), for their support.”
During the day, TV chef Brian Turner CBE returns to headline in the festival’s Cookery Theatre. Always a big hit with audiences, he will do several demonstrations throughout the proceedings. Brian commented: “The festival is such a well organised event and it’s a pleasure to be coming back, seeing old friends, making new ones, back home in Yorkshire! Come and see my demonstrations and let’s have some fun!”
It is estimated the event attracts up to 30,000 visitors during the day.
All cookery demonstrations are free to enter.
A shuttle bus service will run all day from The Lawns Campus, to and from the village centre.
Sponsors include EY Events, Graham & Rosen Solicitors and DM Keith (Skoda).
