We are delighted to announce that the 2018 Dorset Food and Venison Festival will take place on Saturday 5th May
The Christchurch Food Festival is a fast-growing business-led event. It has developed into a huge and popular attraction drawing thousands of people to our colourful and vibrant town centre and picturesque riverside setting. This culinary relationship with our environment is visualized through the use of bespoke illustrations in our Festival’s marketing.
There’ll be stalls the length of the town, featuring the fabulous Anonymous Travelling Market on Park Walk, as well as producers from The Dorset Farmers Market and Dorset Food and Drink in the High Street.
The Spring Tide Food Festival is an annual celebration of Dorset’s finest local produce held at Hive Beach, Burton Bradstock on a weekend in May.
Hugh has been getting involved with the plans for the Food Fair next May. He has invited some inspiring speakers, including columnist and author George Monbiot and great chef’s including Michelin starred Tom Kerridge.
The Sherborne Castle Country Fair presents a rich and fun programme of events, country activities, stands and entertainment including one of the largest Rare Breed Shows in the country.

We look forward to welcoming you to for great day out with your family.
