Food and Drink Festival 2011 dates revealed

The dates for the 2011 Stone Food and Drink Festival were revealed today.

This year’s festival weekend will be from Friday 30th September to Sunday 2nd October, with lots of events taking place in the town in the week leading up to the big weekend.

Last year’s festival, despite the rain, was another huge success, with tens of thousands of people visiting the town for the experience. The Hairy Bikers attracted the crowds and here’s hoping for another big name for 2011. No word on this year’s celebrity chef/chefs yet. Who would you like to see there??

    1. Thanks for your posting and our subsequent chat on the phone. Our website is currently being updated and should be live in the next couple of weeks. There will be a downloadable application form on it but we’ve got you on our database now so we’ll be in touch.

  2. Thanks for the suggestions! We’re hard at work already and hope to make an announcement soon. Topping the Hairy Bikers will be difficult but I’m hopeful we can do it! And I take your point Peggy about chef’s timings. There will be quite a few improvements in the Demonstration Kitchen this year and that will be one of them.
    Thanks to everyone for their continued support. Richard Stevens – Chairman.

    1. Hi Peggy. James Martin would be great! Is it too much to expect Jamie Oliver??? Now *that* would be amazing!! It’s going to take someone pretty special to top the Hairy Bikers. Did you see any of their demonstrations?
