Abergavenny Food Festival
15/09/2018 @ 11:00 am - 16/09/2018 @ 6:00 pm
The UK’s most progressive chefs, food producers, farmers, cooks and campaigners will be heading to Abergavenny this September to help us celebrate 20 years of the food festival.
Wristbands are now on sale with additional ticketed events to be released in June along with our full festival line up.
Day and weekend wristbands will give you access to all of our Producer Markets and Saturday Street Food and Night Market, where you’ll be absolutely spoiled for choice! This year, all of our chef demos will be taking place on the Market Hall stage meaning all you’ll need is a wristband to catch home cooking inspiration from some of the UK’s best chefs! The Castle will be packed full of interesting talks and entertainment for all the family.
Access to the festival is free for children accompanied by an adult. There will be plenty to keep them busy with free kids’ cookery classes and activities throughout the weekend!
Additional ticketed events
In addition to the wristbands we will be hosting a range of ticketed events, classes and celebrations:
Taking place in St Mary’s Priory Centre will be a great programme of Tasting Workshops on specialist subjects by award winning food writers, chefs and experts.
Get ready for some good old-fashioned gluttony. No food festival is complete until you’ve experienced the joy of a mind-blowing menu, shared with friends.
We are introducing a programme of Tutored Tastings taking place in the Corn Exchange above the iconic Market Hall. Each tasting will be presented by farmers and chefs, and aim to get people thinking about how different methods of food production affect taste and flavour.
Forages and Tours
Learn more about your favourite food or drink and discover the bounty of nature’s best ingredients with a variety of tours and forages available right on our doorstep.
Party at the Castle
