About the Festival

Tetbury Food and Drink Festival 16th-20th September 2015

September is traditionally harvest time for many and in Tetbury , many are  looking forward to the annual Food and Drink Festival held over five days in the Town.
As always everything kicks off on Wednesday the 16th with the gathering of the Gloucester Old Spot Sausage Appreciation Society at The Close Hotel; and this year we are thrilled to have as our guest Speaker Cotswold Life’s very own Poet Extraordinaire Mr Peter Wyton.  We will raise our forks in praise of what many consider the best pork in the country making the event even more special is that the Sausages are devised by local people and then created especially for the Festival by Sausage Supremo Mr John Newman from Jesse Smith Butchers.

We know that there will be a very special happening at Highgrove – home to TRH The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall – check out the Festival’s web site for up to date detail and others taking part include the Royal Oak in Tetbury and Café 53 whose Vegetarian Evening hosted and created by Tina Stevenson from The Pink Cab is always a sell out.

On Sunday  in the centre of Town, set in under and around the  Market Hall is the immensely  popular Festival Market with lots of super tasty stalls offering everything from cheese to chutney, champagne to cider and speciality beers, tasty cakes and pies, plus fresh fruit and vegetables from nearby Aunt Addies Farm - a local social farming project whose main aim is providing an opportunity for local groups including disabled, young and others the chance to experience the healthy outdoor life becoming involved in sowing planting and reaping the benefits.

We very much hope Rob Rees MBE The Cotswold Chef will pop along and say hallo – his Wiggly Machine will certainly be making an appearance; a lovingly restored 1967 Citroen H Van  this is a street food van by day and poverty pop up by night with all funds raised during the day funding the provision of hot nutritious food to those who need it most in the community whilst also offering work experience to vulnerable people creating a gateway into paid employment .
