It’s time to make your mouth water as the Regional Food Festival comes to Normanby Hall Country Park on Sunday 17 June 2012.
Last year more than 4,500 people visited the Regional Food Festival at Normanby Hall Country Park and this year’s event looks set to be just as popular.
The festival started in 2008 and is the biggest food festival in North Lincolnshire.
It attracts scores of stall holders selling everything from speciality chocolates and mouth-watering cakes to artisan breads and rare breed meat.
The Food Festival is a great day out for all the family with live music, cookery demonstrations, food samples, crafts and gifts, all in the glorious surroundings of North Lincolnshire Council’s Normanby Hall Country Park.
Entertainment this year includes:
- Cookery demonstrations by chef Nigel Brown
- Dance from Kimberley Performing Arts Centre
- Promenade theatre from The Little Theatre Club as they present ‘A Regency Romance’
- Music from Markham Main Colliery Band
- Chris Maddin, lead vocalist on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, and the cast of The Twist Show which is coming to The Baths Hall on 5 July, will be performing hits from the show.
Already more than 50 regional food, craft and produce stall holders have confirmed their attendance at the event.
Together they will be bringing a mouth-watering selection of the finest local produce that people can sample, order and buy at the festival.
Stalls will be set up on the beautiful lawn in front of Normanby's Regency Hall. Here visitors will be able to buy or sample speciality chocolates, fresh cheeses, cakes, pasties, breads and much, much more.
There will also be fresh fish, dairy free products, vegetarian cuisine, organic juices, delicious curries, and homemade fudges - to name but a few.
Cllr John Briggs, deputy leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said:
“This year’s Regional Food Festival at Normanby Hall Country Park promises to be a delightful day out for all the family and it’s also a vital event for local businesses.
