Ellie the Eel has always taken pride of place by leading our carnival inspired parade. However, after many years of use, Ellie is looking a little tired and desparately needs funds to revitalise her and her friends. In order to ensure she is able to attend our parade in 2019 please click here and find out how you can get involved.
We are delighted to announce that joining us in our Cookery Theatre this year will be award-winning celbrity chef Aldo Zilli who specialises in Italian, vegetarian and seafood cuisine. Aldo will be our feature chef on Monday and Hala El-Shafie, the edgy nutrionist from Channel's 4 "How to Loose Weight" will be giving our festival a health spin this year.
We can't wait to bring you yet another fabulous programme of eel related and inspired menus which will be available across the festival weekend. This is a chance to visit some our best loved eateries and of course try eel! The full programme will be available in April 2019.
Our In Conversation With programme, which gives a select number of people the opportunity to personally meet and greet our celebrity chefs and hear a little more about their lives and careers, has become a popular part of our festival weekend. Tickets now available to book by clicking this box.
