Food and Drink Festival



Sunday 6th and Monday 7th May, 10.30 am to 4.30 pm

Located on Palace Green, in the shadow of the magnificent Ely Cathedral, at the very heart of this historic city, we had over 75 artisan food and drink traders, an expansive street food scene and amazing celebrity chefs demonstrating in our fabulous Cookery Theatre, sponsored by G’s Fresh. 

The Street Food Scene, comprising of a range of culinary delights, which tantalised many taste buds with the unusual, yet exquisitely put together combinations. We also had our beer tent and gin and fizz bar with some easy listening live music that the record breaking crowds enjoyed.

Located on St Mary's Green, outside the Tourist Information Centre, the Kitchen Pantry returned.  The crowds found a selection of goodies to help stock their pantry, some handy gadgets and beautiful kitchenware along with a seating area and some scrumptious light bites.

Celebrity Chef Line up

Each year we endeavour to bring an interesting and varied programme of local talented chefs and demonstrators as well as renowed chefs.  We were thrilled that this year we welcomed the amazing talents of legends, Brian Turner and Rosemary Shrager who joined us in the Cookery Theatre.
