Loughborough English Food and Drink Festival
A delicious date for foodies has been added to the calendar for Easter with the launch of a new food and drink event in Loughborough.
Loughborough English Food and Drink Festival will be held in the Market Place, Loughborough, between 10am and 4pm, on Easter Monday and will feature a range of stalls selling artisan and speciality food and drink, as well as cooking demonstrations.
“Shoppers have a big appetite for regional food and drink, and Loughborough English Food and Drink Festival will bring together Britain’s love of traditional markets with the opportunity for people to buy some excellent regional products,” said Jo Taylor, events co-ordinator of East Midlands Fine Foods which is running the event on behalf of Charnwood Borough Council.
“Seasonal entertainment will be on offer, including cooking demonstrations, and we’re hoping to create a great family atmosphere on Easter Monday.”
It is due to sell a range of tasty goodies – from pickles and pies, to cheeses and chutneys, and from sausages and cider, to cakes and coffees.
Artisan producers from across England are expected to take part in the event, which is the first of four similar food and drink festivals being organised for Loughborough during the year.
