Add Salisbury Food and Drink Festival to your Itinerary

Salisbury Food & Drink (C) Adrian Harris Photography

Salisbury Food & Drink Festival is set to be a fantastic week of foodie events, family fun and gourmet produce, in and around the city. Opening with the annual Food & Drink Market Day on Sunday 8th September, local and regional stalls will fill the Market Square and spread into the Guildhall with fresh, local foods and locally made drinks. Let the kids loose at the creative cooking workshop at Dinghams Cookshop, make your own fire-baked pizzas and pop into the Guildhall for professional cookery demonstrations and mini-chef cooking sessions. Look out for Hoodwink street theatre, who will be performing, and listen to the fabulous big band Young Jazz in the afternoon.

In the evening, head over to Salisbury Arts Centre, for ‘Romantics Anonymous’, an irresistible French fancy of a film directed by Jean-Pierre Améris, in which a socially awkward chocolatière hires the chronically shy and withdrawn Angélique to help revive his ailing business. This endearing romance has already been snapped up for a Hollywood remake and the evening includes a chocolate tasting treat.

Throughout the rest of the Food & Drink Festival, Neal’s Yard has arranged various food events for a natural and organic lifestyle, including a herb walk to the Water Meadows and tips about making medicinal home remedies and tasty cordials. River Cottage’s John Wright will take a group on a wild food foraging walk around the River Bourne Community Farm. Some of Wiltshire’s finest chefs will be joining us to share their expertise with cooking demonstrations. Local hen expert, Charlotte Fyfe, will give a fascinating talk about keeping hens and, whether or not you are keen hen-keeper or a complete beginner, this will be informative for all.

Take advantage of our exclusive Festival Feasts at restaurants, pubs and cafes around the city, offering festival-goers the chance to indulge in everything from a morning coffee and cake, to a delicious evening meal.

Come along to Salisbury Food & Drink Festival for a rural city retreat, to sample the local foods, taste regionally made drinks and relax into some early Autumn festivity.
