have the spring flowers come up to see the sunshine, but the wonderful food
festivals of the UK have also started springing up for some guilt-free food
appreciation time. Anything revolving around eating food is a winner in my eyes,
so what better way to spend a day out than visiting some of the best foodie
festivals on offer this year.
Let’s take a look at those wonderful 2014 UK food fests we recommend you pay a visit to… who knows, you might even make a short break out of it just remember to make it a Superbreak.
The Colchester Food and Drink Festival
28th & 29th June 2014
Forget about the Sugar Hut, Essex’s Food and Drink Festival in Colchester is
where it’s at this year. Set within the beautiful Lower Castle Park on the last
weekend of June, you’ll find an abundance of tasty treats to satisfy even the
pickiest of food connoisseurs. With free celebrity chef kitchen demonstrations on all day, visitors can easily pick up a few tips and tricks for homemade foodie goodness all year round.
There’ll be plenty of grub going round with many stalls offering FREE tastings
before you buy – if only restaurants operated this way? And for those who like to wet their whistle, head to The Pikestaff Inn for local real ale, artisan ciders and local and international wines. With music to enjoy throughout the event as well as free parking (we love a convenient food fest), the Colchester Food and Drink Festival is up there with the best.
Why not make a weekend of it? You’re just over an hour away from the Capital in Colchester – the perfect excuse for an overnight stay in London with a fancy dinner and theatre show thrown in!
3rd Annual North Leeds Charity Beer Festival
30th & 31st
At no time have the words charity, beer and festival ever sounded so good.
Brought together for this exciting annual event in Leeds, it’s the perfect
opportunity to sample locally brewed ales with live music from a variety of
bands performing throughout the weekend. This year’s event will also celebrate the Tour de France coming to Yorkshire with 17 specially brewed beers to try.
Taking place at St Aidan’s Community Hall you can come along, get merry with 28 truly Yorkshire ales, enjoy brilliant live music and the best bit…do it all for charity.
