FOODIES will be flocking to Arley Hall for a celebration of all things gourmet and artisan.

The Great British Food Festival is Back for its fifth year on the weekend of September 23 and 24. Organisers promise more food and drink stalls, along side a new gift and craft marquee.

Crowd favourites like the chef demo tent, cake competition and Man v Food Challenge stage will also be back.

The festival will feature more than 80 artisan producers showcasing the best regional and seasonal food as well as music, real ale and wine bars and activities for the kids throughout the day.

A spokesman for the event said: “It’s a great opportunity to get a real taste of the best of Cheshire and Great British produce.

“With the UK’s amazing mix of cultures and cuisines we thought it would be a shame to overlook some more exotic elements – so you can try Thai, Mexican, Asian as well as pulled pork, prime steak, and the best regional burgers and sausages, for those with more traditional tastes.”

The Great British Food Festival will be held at Arley Hall on September 23 and 24. Visit
