Next weekend the Foodies Festival returns to Tatton Park with an array of delicious street food and pop-up bars, appearances from top Manchester chefs, plus a brand new live music stage.

Running from 13th to 15th July, head down to catch 2018 MasterChef winner Kenny Tutt cooking his winning recipes in the Chefs Theatre and meet top local chefs including Simon Rimmer of Greens, Adam Reid of The French and Gary Usher from Sticky Walnut, plus bake-off finalist Kate Lyons. 

Feast at the Street Food Avenue where you can enjoy delicious barbecued ribs and wings, Vietnamese bao buns, soft shell crab, artisan pizza, Caribbean chicken, Greek souvlaki , Spanish calamari and paella as well as a range of vegetarian and vegan delights. 

Whisk up a tasty tipple in Prosecco and Parmesan masterclasses and taste the latest summer wines, as well as sampling brand new gin and beer brands in the Drinks Theatre. Or try your hand at chocolate-making and cake decorating.

Indulge in refreshing cocktails at the Tequila Shack, Tikki Rum Bar and Gin Station or let your hair down at cream-pie throwing, cheese stretching and chilli-eating contests.

Children can try their hand at making Eton Mess, Salt Dough and Rainbow Salad Stacks in the Kids Cookery Theatre run by SuperChefs and there is a vintage funfair for them to enjoy.

This year the Foodies Festival’s opening hours have been extended later into the evening to showcase musical talent from across Manchester.

On the new MAH main stage will be a trio of famous hit-makers – The Hoosiers, Toploader and Dodgy – all playing their summer sounds including Dancing in the Moonlight in support of Musicians Against Homelessness, supported by Manchester bands China Lane, Puppet Rebellion and Big Bambora.
