The Great British Food Festival is going ahead as planned on the 26th & 27th September at Arley Hall near Knutsford in Cheshire, and has recently been awarded the Visit Britain ‘We’re Good to Go’ certification.
The ‘We’re Good to Go’ mark shows that the event has implemented Covid-19 government guidance, and put in place measures to ensure visitor and staff safety.
Daniel Maycock, a director from the Great British Food Festival said: ‘We are really looking forward to putting on this new, covid compliant, version of our Food Festival at Arley Hall. The event has been a regular in our summer calendar for a number of years and we can’t wait to be back out on the event field.’
The event has been modified due to the current climate, with online pre booking of tickets now required, limited capacity on the event site, a one way system around the stands and all traders asked to wear face coverings.
Daniel added: ‘We wanted to keep as much of the event as possible, but unfortunately some of our regular elements can’t work but we are bringing over 100 amazing food and drink stalls, a chef demo stage, BBQ demos and a live music stage. We will also have some children’s entertainment and our popular forager walks – best of all it’s all in the open air, with a lovely view of Arley Hall and lake.’
Tickets for the event have been reduced in price, due to the limited line up, to just £7.50 for adults and £2.50 for kids, all tickets must be pre booked and contact details given. The event is open from 9.30am-5pm on both the 26th & 27th September and tickets are now available on www.greatbritishfoodfestival.com, where you can find out more details.
