5 Food Festivals Taking Place in the South of the UK This Summer
Love food? Love cooking? Food festivals are a perfect way to taste cuisine from all over the world and get some great ideas to try out at home, as well as learning about the origins of the food on your plate.
So, for a great family day out, with food, drink, live music and more, read on to find out more about the best food festivals the south of the UK has to offer this summer.
The Big Feastival – Chipping Norton, Gloucestershire, 23rd-25th August 2019
Taking place on the farm of Alex James, bassist of 90s band Blur turned cheesemaker, it’s hardly surprising that this food festival is known as much for its musical performances as for the array of delicious goodies on offer. From Jess Glynne to Elbow, there will be plenty of music to keep the family entertained all weekend.
That’s when they’re not sampling the wonderful food of course. And with pop-ups, street food, markets and cookery schools aplenty, you’ll certainly be spoiled for choice in between all that dancing.
Meatopia, London’s Tobacco Dock, August 30th – September 1st 2019
Founded in New York 10 years ago, Meatopia first came to the UK in 2013 thanks to founder Josh Ozersky and team. Described as a weekend of meat, drink, fire and music, Meatopia gives you the chance to see some of the world’s top chefs cooking unique dishes over an open fire, allowing you to try as many as you like using ‘Meatbucks’ as payment.
There’s a valuable focus on the importance of ethically sourcing ingredients and plenty of live music to keep everyone entertained. Kids are welcome too, and even better under 14s go free.
