Events at this Venue


The popular food and drink event return to Stafford town centre for a fourth year with confirmation that Jean-Christophe will be pitting his culinary skills against a local chef in a ‘cook off’ as well as opening up the festival with a demonstration of his cooking talent - using Staffordshire produce.

Events for the Friday include, the opportunity to take Afternoon Tea (including a scone making demonstration), and the chance to try over 80 different gins at the Stafford Gin Jamboree in the evening, these events are ticket only and must be booked in advance.

On Saturday top local chefs from the Staffordshire Chefs Forum will be getting the crowd's taste buds going with cookery demonstrations and there will be an alfresco bar.

A highlight on the Saturday is ....."The Great Chefs Challenge” – when two local chefs will go head to head in a ready, steady, cook style challenge at 1pm …..make sure you take your seats early; this will be something not to be missed, and two lucky members of the audience will be invited to join the chefs on stage!

For this year’s festival, there will be more stands, music, street theatre and more events.
