Quarrying flavour

Up to 25,000 people will descend on Shrewsbury’s Quarry Park for the town’s annual food festival on the weekend of 23 and 24 June. Organisers are planning more family fun than ever before, a national BBQ competition and a galaxy of TV and Michelin-starred chefs. This year, families will be at the heart of the event and people will be able to get up close and personal with farm animals, enjoy live entertainment or relax over sizzling hot food or a chilled drink.

Chris Burt from Atcham’s Mytton and Mermaid, who curates the FBC Manby Bowdler Cookery School and the Wenlock Spring Chef Demonstration stage, says, “We’re really upped our game this year to give Shrewsbury the best line-up that it’s ever had – we’re really excited about what’s in store.”

Organiser Beth Heath says, “You’ll be able to have a go at some delicious baking and learn some of the skills that local food producers use day-in and day-out to make scrumptious food. Some of our finest chefs will stage demonstrations; where you can see how they create their award-winning dishes.”

Visit shrewsburyfoodfestival.co.uk to buy tickets, which are £8 for adults or £16 for families.
