by Admin on June 13, 2014

Regardless of what the weather will be doing, Sunday 22nd June will be the hot date to visit Evesham as it hosts the third Vale First Food Festival. Following the success of the previous events, this years’ is set to be bigger and better as it takes place in All Saint’s Churchyard and opposite in the historic Vine Mews, both off Vine Street in Evesham.

The festival will showcase the best locally grown and produced food, drink, crafts and gifts alongside family entertainment and activities, including a climbing tower, juggling, face painting and bouncy castles, and live folk and jazz music from local musician Griff Collins. Visitors will be able to sample and buy a delicious range of hot and cold foods from fresh farm produce and meats, to hog roasts, cakes, sweets, preserves, ales and pies all lovingly and locally made. Paul Napper, new Head Chef at the Evesham Hotel, will deliver a live cookery demonstration, and Word of Mouth Cafe and JellyPickleJam Vintage Tea Shop will also be specially open to provide even more delicious delights. Supported by Transition Evesham Vale, keen or novice gardeners and cooks will also be able to access information and advice from the Vale Landscape Heritage Trust, Master Composters and Love Food Hate Waste.

The festival coincides with the annual National Morris Dancing Weekend; the dancers will also feature as part of the entertainment during the day as they skip, jingle and knock sticks throughout the town! The foodie fun commences at 11am and continues until 4pm with free parking in the Merstow Green and Old Brewery car parks.
