The Big Lunch Food Festival

Our Big Lunch Food Festival is now in its seventh year celebrating not only local food and produce, but a wide variety of foods from around the world.

This annual event takes place on the first Sunday in June.

Originally established to coincide with the Nationwide Big Lunch initiative, the festival celebrates all things food and drink, as well as offering the community a chance to enjoy dining “al fresco” and the opportunity to catch up with family and friends. In 2019 over 4,000 people took to the high street to enjoy the street party atmosphere of the event.

As in previous years, a large number of stalls offer a diverse selection of hot and cold food, savouries/snacks, drinks and other food related products. Cookery demonstrations take place throughout the day showing practical culinary tips alongside workshops for both children and adults offering a ‘have-a-go’ experience. Live entertainment and acts suitable for all ages bring additional enjoyment to visitors attending the festival.

The Big Lunch national initiative is run by Eden Projects, more details can be found here; https://www.edenprojectcommunities.com/thebiglunchhomepage.

This year’s event was fully booked. If you would like to take part in next year’s event, bookings will go live in January 2020 so watch this space!
