CIRENCESTER Food Festival returns next weekend.
The event will take place in Cirencester’s Market Place, West Market Place and the Gardens of St John’s Church.
It will be open from 10am-6pm on Saturday, May 21 and 10am-4.30pm on Sunday, May 22.
The festival is being managed by Cotswold Markets Ltd on behalf of Cirencester Town Council.
Mathew Joynes, from Cotswold Markets, said: “After the unfortunate cancellation of the 2020 event, we were back with a bang in 2021, despite the weather trying to slow us down on the Saturday, and here’s to an even bigger and better food festival in 2022.”
As well as the food and drink stalls, there will be live music and children’s entertainment in the festival garden, and cookery demonstrations in the cookery theatre on the Market Place.
Demonstrations will include the Daylesford Cookery School, Siblings Gin providing a cocktail demonstration and Matteo Conte of Non-Solo Pasta.
“There will be a fantastic variety of food and drink on offer over the course of the weekend from a great range of local traders,” added Matthew.
“Whether it is sweet treats from Tewkesbury Treats or delicious beer from Goffs Brewery, there is plenty for everyone over the weekend.”
All the regular markets in Cirencester are continuing this month, including charter markets in the Market Place until 3pm on Mondays and Fridays.
The farmers’ market is on this weekend and continues every other Saturday.
