A NEW food festival is coming to Dunorlan Park this summer featuring top local chefs, Masterchef champions and Great British Bake-Off stars.
Foodies Festival, which is billed as the UK’s biggest touring celebrity food and music festival series, is a welcome addition to Tunbridge Wells following the news that Pub in the Park would not be returning to our town for 2024.
Known as Gastro-Glastonbury, the three-day event runs from July 5-7 and will feature live cooking demonstrations from TV celebrities and chefs drawn from the ranks of MasterChef, Great British Bake Off and Great British Menu.
Showcasing the best of Kent and beyond, many of the region’s most highly acclaimed Michelin and multi-award-winning chefs will also appear.
Foodies Festival will see sustainable champion and award-winning chef Will Devlin, owner of The Small Holding and Birchwood, Thackeray’s Head Chef Patrick Hill, Adam Turley Head Chef and Proprietor of The Old Bank Restaurant in Westerham and Alex Yates of Bowleys.
The top chefs will be joined in the ‘Chefs Theatre’ by MasterChef champs and Bake-Off winners will take over the ‘Cake and Bake Theatre’ whipping up showstoppers and sweet treats.
The award-winning festival will see Symphonic Ibiza Orchestra headline the July 5 date, with other musical acts set to be announced.
There will be a chance to sample new wines, champagnes and cocktails in The Drinks Theatre, and there will be delicious street food from around the world on offer and a Kids Cookery Theatre for children to join in on the fun.
Foodies Festival will take place from 5-7 July 2024 at Dunorlan Park. For more information and to book tickets visit foodiesfestival.com/ events/tunbridge-wells/
