A big thank you…
With the Droitwich Spa Food and Drink Festival over for another year we would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the traders, demonstration chefs and hosts, guests, entertainers, the team of volunteers who organised the event, our sponsors and everyone else involved who made the day such a success.
It was an amazing day and we hope everyone that attended enjoyed themselves too.
Next year’s festival will take place on Saturday 16th June in the Lido Park, Droitwich, and booking forms will be available in December.
Our Vision is for the Droitwich Spa Festival to be regarded as one of the best family-friendly Festivals in the Midlands attracting people to the town, its facilities and attractions.
Droitwich Spa is a great place to stage and run such a Festival – We have the perfect history and heritage – Salt. Going back to Saxon and Roman times Droitwich has been famous for Salt and Salt and Food are perfectly connected. Salt to preserve food and to enhance the taste.
Droitwich is surrounded by some of the best quality food and drink producers in Britain – as well as our own producers in Worcestershire, we have some excellent food and drink producers in the surrounding counties of Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire. Centred between Bromsgrove, Redditch, Kidderminster, Stratford-upon-Avon and Worcester we really are at the centre of England’s Foodie Heaven and we are geographically perfectly placed to attract many visitors.
Don’t just take our word for it – here’s what some of the exhibitors and visitors said about last year’s Festival.
Nigel Huddleston MP Mid Worcestershire
“My very warm congratulations to you and the entire team on the organisation of the wonderful Droitwich Spa Food & Drink Festival last weekend. It was such a fantastic event for our community and was an excellent opportunity to showcase so much of our local food and drink produce”
Brian Turner CBE – TV Celebrity Chef
“The weather was fantastic, the crowds were wonderful, it was great to be at such a well organised event and made so welcome. My demonstration went well because the audiences were great, the produce was fantastic, loved the show!’
Katie Johnson – Wots Cooking
“We have organised the cookery theatre at the Droitwich Food Festival since it started 5 years ago. We feature in all the main food festivals in the Midlands and have to say this is one of the best in terms of organisation and interest from the public”
