Fabulous festive Foodies Festival coming to Tatton Park


Tatton Park will be transformed into a spectacular foodie wonderland for a three-day festive feast for the whole family later this month.

Showcasing the best of Cheshire restaurants, chefs, street food and leading food and drink producers, Foodies Festival will feature top chefs, MasterChef winners, a brand new Gin Alley, Artisan Christmas Market, Live Music Stage, Cakes & Desserts Theatre and Festive Masterclasses to inspire you in plenty of time for Christmas.

It’s the perfect way to kick off the Christmas season in style. Get hands on with the Festive Masterclasses and create everything from Christmas wreaths with florists to cupcake decorating with master chocolatier Fiona Sciolti.

A stunning array of Great Taste Awards winners will be exhibiting the best of local produce.

Ask artisan producers questions about their produce and story, and fill up the Christmas stockings with award winning treats to make Christmas extra special.

Drink, anyone? The UK’s top wine, beer and champagne experts will teach you how to match your tipple with food, inspired by the best flavours and tastes of Christmas.

Just when you think you’ve found your new favourite gin, another exciting new brand pops up. Try them at Gin Alley. Infused with natural botanicals, rose, elderflower or casked in whisky, there’s plenty to sample from exhibitors and at the Christmas Gin Cocktail Masterclasses.

Take the kids along to the Elf Cookery School where they can bake and decorate snowballs and snowflakes, gingerbread men, reindeer food and flapjacks or cookies to leave out for Santa.

Take a break from the Champagne Ski Bar and enjoy the post-feasting fun by the Live Music Stage with carols and Scotland’s best unsigned bands bringing the festive spirit throughout the day.

Friday 17th November – Sunday 19th November. Tickets are on sale now and are available here.
