Back for the fourth year on the weekend of August 4 and 5, Sandringham Food and Drink Festival is bigger and better than ever with new celebrity chefs, a popular real ale marquee and live music.

Add to this the unique Fruit De Mer Restaurant, mouth-watering international Piazza area and stomach turning Bushtucker Challenge, and there are all the ingredients for a great day out.

The line-up of celebrity chefs this year includes, on Saturday, Dragon’s Den star Levi Roots – famous for his ‘Reggae Reggae Sauce’; Richard Bainbridge, whose celebrated Norwich restaurant made the Sunday Times top 100 list in 2017; and passionate Mediterranean ‘foodie’ Ursula Ferringo.

On Sunday Matt Tebbutt, of BBC’s ‘Saturday Kitchen’ will be main-stage, as well as Phil Vickery, rated one of the UK’s top 20 chefs and ambassador for Coeliac UK, and Chantelle Nicholson, one of the UK’s leading female names in the hospitality industry.

Other chefs will feature in the more intimate Food Roadshow marquee.

Enjoy the live music from Kevin O’Regan or the Bill Bailey Band. The Bushtucker Challenge offers some not so delicious jungle fare.

In the Fruit De Mer Restaurant the Crabstock Boys will demonstrate the art of seafood cookery in the Food Roadshow. This sells out very quickly – and tickets should be booked in advance.

The Food Halls will contain huge varieties of gins, cheeses and sausages; homemade cakes, pickles, sauces and more; with a taste before you buy approach.

The Moment in Time History Group will be going back in time to the days when cooking was done over a fire.

Children can learn to knead dough or create chocolate wonders in workshops; other attractions include crafts, fairground rides and the ever popular Pinxtons Puppets, where the Big Bad Wolf will be on the prowl.

The Craft Village will feature glassblowing demonstrations, chainsaw carving, blacksmithing and the brand new Mark Anthony Gallery.
