Feast your eyes on The Great Malvern Food Festival

More than 60 stalls offering some of the finest produce around will set tastebuds tingling as the Great Malvern Food Festival returns.

The free event, supported by Malvern Hills District Council, takes place on Bank Holiday Monday 30 May from 10am to 5.30pm, in the grounds of Great Malvern Priory Church.

Some of the finest locally produced food, drink, arts and crafts around will be on offer with something for all tastes. BBC Food Theatre will also be providing demonstrations, talks and displays, while entertainment will be provided by the popular Monsieur Doo - a French chef and onion seller on stilts - the Rock Choir and local buskers.

Practical demonstrations include bushcraft cookery for children by Local Food Lunches, Pam Chen Moore will be showing us how to master Chinese and oriental cookery, Jason Lynas from Terrace on The Hill will be cooking up some of the recipes that have made his Malvern restaurant so successful, and back by popular demand is ‘Our Lizzy’ showcasing some delicious vegetarian and vegan recipes.

The Bank Holiday weekend also includes the Malvern Munch Food Walk. Taking place on Sunday 29 May, the enjoyable seven mile walk over and around the Malvern Hills offers walkers the chance to taste great local food and drink whilst listening to live music at stops along the way. Tickets cost £20 which includes all food and drink and can be purchased from Malvern Hills Tourist Information Centre or call 01684 892289.

Cllr Phil Grove, Leader of Malvern Hills District Council said: “This year’s food festival looks action packed with a great range of food, drink and entertainment on offer. This event is a fantastic showcase of the local produce available in our area and I’d urge people to come and discover some of the mouthwatering morsels available.”
