4 tickets to the
Great Food & Drink Festival

The prestigious Great Food & Drink Festival will be opening its doors at the beautiful Rufford Abbey in Nottinghamshire from 26th to 28th of May. The festival will replace the very popular Nottingham Castle event, which was held on the same bank holiday weekend in May. The change of venue follows the closing of the castle due to the £26 Million refurbishment, which is taking place this year.

The new site will play host to some big-name industry chefs, which include the very popular TV chef James Martin. James will be headlining this year’s event on the Saturday with demos in the main kitchen arena throughout the day. 

This year’s event will also boast some brand-new areas that include “The Gin Collection”. Attendees can come along and enjoy gin tasting, workshops and masterclasses, plus a huge range of some of the finest artisan gin producers, all located under one roof; to top it off there is a fabulous gin bar with a large seated area serving a range of wonderful gin cocktails and drinks.

The Big BBQ will also be making an appearance as an area for the lovers of the fine art of BBQ. Bringing together a selection of the finest purveyors of BBQ food, visitors can indulge on a feast of different meat treats from ribs to brisket. Organisers have selected only the best popup restaurants and street food in the region for visitors to enjoy. There will be the chance to see workshops by the master butcher and pit masters, who will be sharing their tips and secrets on the fine art of smoking and BBQ. The event has over a hundred artisan exhibiters selling everything from home and giftware to local produce such as fabulous breads and cheeses, charcuterie and a whole array of goodies. There will be plenty of popup restaurants selling some great food to suit all palates.

Finally, there are the workshops for the children that will be running each day, that will include pizza making, burger making and the very popular “Go Bake” team. These demos will be available on all three days.
