Ten days of food, drink and feasting: Welcome to Bournemouth's legendary Food and Drink Festival.
- When? 16th - 25th June 2017
- Where? Bournemouth Square, Bournemouth
- Price: Free except for parking
Feasting for ten days may sound like some kind of medieval dream, but it's actually a reality at Bournemouth's Food and Drink Festival. Showcasing the best local produce, fine wines and ales plus hosting plenty of cooking demonstrations, this is an event your appetite will thank you for (your diet, not so much).
Coastal Bournemouth has a successful foodie reputation and as such, the festival offers plenty of award-winning tastings, treats and tipples. One of the highlights is the Street Food Festival, home to pop-up restaurants, wood-fired pizza ovens, paella stalls and evening entertainment. For those looking for a little hands on experience, the demo kitchen will be whipping up creations and offering advice and tips for visitors. If you can't wait for the festival to get underway, book tickets for the wonderfully named 'Baron of Beef' festival launch party which features a three course menu and wine.
Bournemouth Food and Drink festival also has a cool, after hour’s scene, with live music and bands performing to hungry customers while they wait. And while we can't guarantee you'll manage to stick to the diet, ten days of feasting sounds fine to us. Forks at the ready.
- Get there: From Bournemouth Station, take the M1 bus to Bournemouth Square.
- Stay: Book accommodation on the seafront. You'll only be a short walk from the venue and you'll have wonderful sea views.
