Countdown to The Great Malvern Food Festival

The Great Malvern Food Festival is just around the corner and getting ready to cook up a storm.

Taking place on Bank Holiday Monday 30 May from 10am to 5.30pm, in the grounds of Great Malvern Priory Church, the free event has a whole host of treats in store for adults and children.

The event will celebrate the wide range of high quality food and drink produced in the town and surrounding area, including homemade fudge, handmade scotch eggs, falafels,  gourmet hot dogs, Becky’s Bhajis, 63 Islands Caribbean Food, Elgar wine, Jon’s Spice Hut and many more.

Festival highlights include the BBC Hereford and Worcester stage with live streaming and music throughout the day. BBC presenter Mandi Harris will be hosting the stage, talking to chefs, promoting local community organisations and discussing local issues.

The cookery demonstration stage will be offering visitors the chance to discover great recipes from top local chefs, including Jason Lynas from Terrace On The Hill who has worked with star chefs such as Raymond Blanc, Pam Chen Moore will be teaching how to create wholesome oriental food from scratch, and Lizzy Hughes who runs her own vegetarian cookery school will also be demonstrating some mouth-watering recipes.

The event also caters for children with entertainment and activities including a bushcraft cookery workshop, biscuit decorating, solving food related puzzles, and lots more. 

The Bank Holiday weekend will also include a vintage and retro fair on Saturday 28 May between 10am and 4pm along Abbey Road, with an eclectic mix of vintage antique and modern furniture, jewellery, collectables, clothes and objet d’art. The Malvern Munch food walk will also be taking place on Sunday 29 May, a seven mile walk over the Malvern Hills with local food, drink and live music stops along the way. Tickets cost £20 which includes all food and drink and can be purchased from Malvern Hills Tourist Information Centre.
