The Sandringham Food & Drink festival returns on the weekend of August 6-7 and promises to be an inspirational event for specialist food and drink enthusiasts.

The event will have a summer festival feel about it, with jazz and country music.

The Festival’s ‘Chefs on Stage’ plan to give show visitors a series of entertaining and instructive live demonstrations; a unique line up of national and regional star chefs, who bring an intriguing selection of international food backgrounds and influences.

An impressive line-up of chefs on the main Food Theatre Stage awaits the festival visitor. Saturday sees the charismatic Theo Randall, Daniel Clifford and Holly Bell take centre stage, on Sunday John Torode, Lisa Faulkner and Holly Bell star.

On the smaller food roadshow stage the main attraction is the Crabstock Boys, and there will be further cookery demonstrations by chefs from local eateries, with local chef Naomi Hansell, Linda Hewitt a baker from Lincolnshire and Jimmy Buchan from the hit TV series The Trawlermen. The Crabstock Boys will also host the only Pop up Sea Food Restaurant in the UK which has proved to be so fantastically popular.

The Festival’s range of Food Halls will feature a line-up of local and regional speciality food and drink producers, with a particular focus on British food provenance, locally reared meats, artisan baking, also with micro-breweries and a real ale marquee.

Visit the Piazza, it’s that special area of the festival where you come to relax and eat. There’s a plethora of food vendors, caterers, bars, the choice is extensive with many types of food from different countries, street food, vegetarian, barbeques, there’s something to suit all tastes. All to be enjoyed whilst listening to Jazz or Folk Music

An interesting corner of the festival is Craft Corner, the main marquees hosting a varied selection of crafts and skills.

A series of smaller marquees house working craftsmen, watch Glass Blowers, Blacksmiths at work or have a go at throwing a pot, painting a pot or making a sand picture.

The Festival brings to Sandringham a touch of summertime, al fresco dining, Masterchefs, artisan food and drink, music, fun and hopefully laughter. So come along to enjoy yourselves, eat drink and be merry.
