Within the 321 acres of countryside and gardens Elvaston Castle is the venue for The Big Food and Drink Festival. The castle is in grounds with secret mazes, vegetable gardens and flower gardens. It has earned the green flag award for it’s green space provision which is just as well because the Big Food and Drink Festival promises to be a marvellous show with so much going for it.

As yet the details are unconfirmed, however, these are some probable activities available on the day.

There will, of course, be vast numbers of stall holders showing how to use local produce. These skilled artisans of culinary delicacies will be on hand to answer questions about the produce they display. Be sure to pick up some produce and ingredients to have a go at making your own versions of the foods available.

There will be lots of animal displays too, with local farmers taking along livestock big and small. Everyone loves talking about their animals so don’t be afraid to ask questions about any breeds you are interested in. Goats, sheep, rabbits and even smaller animals like guinea pigs will be available to view.

There will also be displays of bigger animals, the more rural areas of the castle will allow horses and ponies to be shown.

The emphasis really though is on the food and drink from local produce to dishes from around the world. There will be some local celebrity chefs and cooking demonstrations and workshops to help you really hone your culinary skills.

Entry is free so why not come along and join in the fun?

Note, please check the event website before attending. Dates can change and events can get cancelled, we can not be held responsible.
