MORE THAN 40 market stalls and street vendors will be offering a variety of locally sourced produce when the Great Malvern Food Festival returns next weekend.
The free, two-day festival will run from 10am to 6pm on Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday, July 10 and 11, at its new location in Priory Park.
Providing the iconic backdrop of Malvern Theatres and the Malvern Hills, the new location will enable the stalls to be spread out across a larger area with family activities and the Cookery Demonstration Theatre which is being hosted in the open-air bandstand.
Visitors will be able to watch live cookery demonstrations, along with food and drink showcases to find out about top market traders. Top local chefs will be on hand to offer tips and advice on how to create fabulous dishes at home using locally sourced produce from stallholders.
The festival has been organised by Boffy Events in partnership with Malvern Hills District Council and is supported by Windsor Court, the new retirement village and care home in Great Malvern.
Windsor Court provides unique and personalised assistance in luxurious surroundings, offering outstanding nursing, residential and dementia care.
Coun Daniel Walton, Portfolio Holder for Economic Development and Tourism at Malvern Hills District Council, said: “It is great to see the festival returning to
tickle the tastebuds once again.
“There is so much on offer for people of all ages, from high quality food and drink to cooking demonstrations from passionate chefs.
“We encourage everyone to pay a visit and support their local producers.”
