Bunting, Buns and Foodie Fun as Foodies Festival Returns to Harrogate’s Ripley Castle 19th – 21st August

Foodies Festival returns to Harrogate next weekend, 19th - 21st August, with a feast of foodie fun, transforming the grounds of Ripley Castle into a food-lovers paradise with its celebration of the finest food, drink and culinary talent Yorkshire has to offer.

Watch top local chefs including Stephanie Moon of Rudding Park, Simon Jewitt from Norse and Murray Wilson of Horto cooking some of their favourite dishes live in the Aga Rangemaster Chefs Theatre.

Now you have the recipes, pick up everything you need to recreate these at home in the Artisan Market, where you can shop and sample from over 100 award-winning producers, but be sure to leave room for a feast of international flavours and delicacies on the Street Food Avenue and champagne, wine and craft beer masterclasses in the Drinks Theatre.

Those with a sweet tooth will love the Cake & Bake Theatre - taste your way through baking and chocolate masterclasses with Burlesque Baker Charlotte White and master chocolatier Fiona Sciolti, and a Kids Cookery School keeps little foodies entertained with cupcake-making and noodle doodle classes.

After a day of foodie fun, picnic on the grass with friends and family and relax with live music from the Unsigned Music Awards and a refreshing cocktail from the Giant Pimm’s Teapot or Mojito Galleon, or enter the famous Chilli-Eating Competition.

A new 1920’s styled VIP tent offers a space to relax in style, with live music from a grand piano, a private mirror bar and a welcome glass of bubbly for VIPs.
