The 2015 Festival is now over, but we are looking forward to seeing you next year!
Festival Market & Festival Village will be on Saturday & Sunday 7th & 8th May 2016
The 2015 Christchurch Food & Wine Festival weekend on 9 & 10 May 2015 will have a touch of sunshine in it, whatever the weather, as the headline act will be the Jamaican chef famous for his Reggae Reggae products, Levi Roots.
Levi will be cooking up some Caribbean recipes on Saturday 9 May in the demonstration marquee which next year will be moving to the Quomps on Christchurch Quay as part of the new Festival Village.
Also joining the Festival on Sunday 10 May will be TV chef, Dean Edwards who was a Masterchef finalist in 2006 and is currently a resident chef on ITV’s “Lorraine”. On the Sunday we will once again be welcoming back, the Festival Patron, Lesley Waters who will be cooking all sorts of exciting dishes in the demonstration marquee.
Last year The Kings Arms held an extension to the Festival with a Family Fun Day on the bowling green opposite the hotel on the Sunday, and that will be held again this year, as it was such a popular event.
Remember too that the Festival isn’t just about the weekend – lots of local eateries will be holding events throughout May, so check out what is on here.
As well as the Events, many cafes, restaurants and pubs are getting involved in the Trails – we have a Coffee & Cake Trail; a Cocktail Trail and a Real Ale Trail.
