This popular feature has relocated to the Showering Pavilion, the largest permanent building on the Showground, and has a new sponsor, Jon Thorners. Amongst the food stands in the Hall and on the Main Lawn will be Fanny Annie’s (retro street food); Alimentos (Spanish street food); Hidden Pizza; The Curry man; Salcombe Dairy; Unstabled Bar and Café; and the Chock Shop (homemade brownies); whilst cheese aficionados can enjoy Godminster Cheese, The Great British Cheese Company, and Bath Soft Cheese.
Food will combine with the festival vibe courtesy of ‘Liver Cottage’, with comedy chefs Hugh Fearn and Lee Whittingstall presenting alternative cookery demonstrations. As the mobile kitchen garden moves through the crowds they’ll create ‘fusion food on the move’, blending home grown ingredients with food foraged from the corner shop, the streets, and the audience.
Blurring the boundaries between ‘traditional’ and ‘contemporary’, ‘urban’ and ‘rural’, ‘fresh’ and ‘best before June 1972’, the Liver Cottage chefs stick to their motto… “Don’t leave anyone wanting more!”
Cider lovers will be delighted that The British Cider Championships will take place at the Festival, within the Orchards & Cider Area, which has moved to the Sedgemoor Building.
Alan Lyons, Head of Shows, said, “The Food & Drink Hall is one of the best-loved parts of the Bath & West experience. It gives our visitors the opportunity to try unique West Country produce, and is also a wonderful platform for our stallholders.”
The Bath & West Country Festival takes place on 27th-29th August. Tickets are available now at https://www.bathandwest.com/tickets
