Visitors will also be treated to chef demonstrations where they will be able to see the latest skills and expert tips on Indian, Thai, Spanish and British dishes, plus sausage and ice cream making.
There will also be a variety of local and regional produce, fresh and ready for visitors to take away and enjoy at home.

And for the younger visitors, the kid’s zone will provide plenty of entertainment from face painting and various crafts to circus workshops and food themed story telling.
