The festival offers something for everyone - from dedicated foodies to families.
The Exeter Food Festival will be held from Friday 29th April - Sunday 1st May at Northernhay Gardens and Exeter Castle and promises to be a sizzling weekend of culinary delights. It's the perfect way to enjoy the extended bank holiday weekend and to celebrate the Royal Wedding!
The Festival Cookery Theatre in association with Event Exeter, In-toto Kitchens, NEFF and 3663 will play host to top chefs including Michael Caines, Lesley Waters, Nathan Outlaw, Mark Hix, Chris and James Tanner, Peter Gorton and past Masterchef stars Dhruv Baker, Steve Groves, Tim Kinnaird, James Nathan, Mat Follas and more.
With day one of the festival, Friday 29th April, coinciding with the Royal Wedding, it will be the ideal place to enjoy the big day with food and drink fit for a king. Witness the royal events unfolding on the giant 25 square metre screen and create a picnic from the vast array of regional produce on sale. Friday will be packed with Royal Wedding fun with everything from a 'Wedding Cupcake Master Class' to Westcountry bubbly tasting with wine writer Susy Atkins. Visitors are encouraged to get into the spirit of the occasion and come along in royal-themed fancy dress - there will be a prize for the best dressed visitor on the Friday.
