The Christchurch Food & Wine Festival is one of the premier events of its type, with this being its 15th year.  It started way back in 2000 as a local millennium project and is now a well established and much-loved annual event.

To keep the event fresh it has changes each year, but the focus is always on the highly successful two day market which covers the whole of Christchurch town centre and this year it was on Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th May.

Once again we welcomed Lesley Waters, the Festival’s Patron, as well as Cyrus Todiwala, regular guest on Saturday Kitchen and co-presenter of BBC’s The Incredible Spice Men, who both demonstrated their amazing cooking skills over the weekend.

For 2014 we have new events with a Taste Trail and a Real Ale Trail, and throughout May, local businesses will be putting on events which we are calling Festival Bites!

It’s still quite a while to the 2015 Festival, but it’s never too soon to put the dates in your diary! The Festival Market will be on Saturday..
