Welcome in the Summer with Style

April 13, 2010

Leicester Market is proud to be hosting Leicester’s first Summer Food & Drink Festival.

After the success of last November’s Winter Food Festival, our aim is to make this next event even bigger, brighter and tastier, with even more stalls and a wider selection of food and drink.

The free to attend event is expected to be the largest regional one-day Food & Drink Festival in the country, attracting over 15,000 food and drink loving visitors.

It will take place on Sunday 30th May 2010, at Leicester’s outdoor market, the largest covered market in Europe.

We are also offering a free giveaway of a FREE PIECE OF FRUIT for every festival visitor. Please click here for full terms and conditions.

The festivities kick-off with live entertainment at 11.00am and the shopping, sampling and family fun will bubble along until the event closes at 5.00pm.

There is expected to be well in excess of 200 hot and cold stalls, with a vibrant blend of local producers all showcasing the very best produce from our region.

Leicester’s unique cultural heritage will be highlighted with areas dedicated to Asian and international cuisine. Local restaurants will also be serving tantalising slices of the varied culinary delights that Leicester has to offer.

Mouth watering activities and street entertainment will take place in the Corn Exchange Square, with the proceedings being hosted by celebrity chef, Rachel Green.

Amongst all the gastronomical treats, there will be an array of leading, local chefs happy to impart professional tips and tasty recipes that can be tried at home by budding chefs of all ages.

Within the heart of the festival there will be a dedicated licensed zone where adults can relax and taste the very best of the available refreshments. There will also be cocktail demonstrations, wine tasting master classes and a variety of local ales and ciders to sample.

An exclusive ale is even being developed and launched especially for the Food & Drink Festival and Leicester Market. Not only will a brand new brew available – there will also be a competition to name and design the logo! Click here to enter online now!

The unique range of quality stalls, activities, entertainment and competitions will make Leicester’s Summer Food & Drink Festival a great day out for all the family and a must for all foodies.

We hope to see you there.
