Cheltenham's annual foodie extravaganza is returning for its 14th year of cutting-edge cooking, masterclass teaching, and, most importantly, plenty of free samples of fine food and beverages from across the country.
This year's Cheltenham Food and Drink Festival will see TV chefs, celebrities, and cooking show contestants provide demonstrations, insight, and more than their fair share of insider tips and secrets with attendees. This year's headliner is Celebrity Masterchef winner Lisa Faulkner who will be the guest speaker and demonstrator at the three-day festival.
As usual, much of the food and drink fest will take place in the relative tranquility of the town's Montpellier Gardens at 2023's festival, which will run from Friday (June 23) to Sunday (June 25). Alongside the usual demonstrations, tastings, and talks, festivalgoers will also get the opportunity to sample some of the finest produce and brilliant beverages that England has to offer.
