Fleet Food Festival kicks off this Saturday 23rd June and promises to be a sumptuous event for all the family.
In its fifth anniversary year, the festival has been extended to span the entire weekend of 23th and 24th June. The two-day festival is still free to enter and offers a wide variety of activities.
A feast of a food market
Over 75 stallholders are expected to pack the food market with an array of tempting treats. There will be a strong international flavour with Caribbean and Spanish street foods, Nepalese and Japanese food, Indian, Thai and even Tibetan offerings. There will also be plenty of sweet delights with fine chocolates, handmade marshmallows, award-winning fudge and American inspired brownies all available.
A range of pop up bars will ensure you don’t go dry with traditional West Country ciders, English sparkling wine and even ice cream cocktails on offer.
Cookery Masterclass & Tastes Theatre to inspire you
A busy schedule of demonstrations from expert chefs, cooks and bakers are sure to get your taste buds going. Tickets can be bought on the day for £2 for each session or you can buy a ticket in advance for £10 for all sessions. Look out for Adam Fargin, Head Chef at The Wild Carrot at The Four Seasons on the Saturday afternoon or learn how to cook some Persian delights with Sisi Ryder, chef proprietor of The Phoenix Inn, Hartley Wintney on the Sunday afternoon.
Music while you munch
Sit back and relax as you enjoy live performances from bands and singers including rock, pop, soul, funk and jazz duo Supergreek; folk and rock from The Kindred Spirit Band; local singer-songwriter and future star Lilianne as well as The Elvetham Heath Choir.
There will also be live dance performances from the Fleet Indian Community and Kala the Arts.
Cars and craft
Saturday is the Universal Classic Cars Car Show of classic cars and supercars. If you are a motor-lover then go along and admire over 20 supercars and classic cars parked by The Views. You can even speak to the owners and vote for your favourite car.
Sunday sees a range of artisan craft stalls from The Hart of Craft join the show so it could be the perfect time for a bit of shopping for yourself or friends.
