Tom Kerridge will once again be bringing together his band of incredible chef pals – expect to see some of the hottest new talent in the food world, your TV favourites and some highly acclaimed Michelin-starred names. At each location, there’ll be award-winning pubs and restaurants serving tasting dishes showing their signature style – from local favourites to revered eateries from farther afield – giving you the chance to savour food you might not otherwise get to sink your teeth into.

Every event will feature plenty of festival fun – with chef demonstrations, the finest produce, top quality shopping and a kid’s area to keep the little ones entertained.

Tom Kerridge said “We’re so excited to be bringing some seriously top notch chefs and their incredible pubs and restaurants to the towns we love this year. Food is at the very heart of what we do. I’ve had a sneak peek at the menus and I’ve definitely got my eye on a few of the dishes – we can’t wait for you to try them!”
