History of the festival

The Droitwich Spa Food and Drink Festival started in 2013 and has grown rapidly to become one of the main events in the town.

2018 Festival will be held in The Lido Park, Droitwich Spa again on Saturday 16th June from 10am until 5pm. With a smaller event on the Sunday 17th June.

This year we are pleased to welcome Steven Bailey-Carter, finalist of the Great British Bake Off 2017, and we are currently in discussion with other chefs and food celebrities so will let you know once they are confirmed..

Our Vision – is for the Droitwich Spa Festival to be regarded as one of the best 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 as, going as far back as Saxon and Roman times, Droitwich has long been famous for the production of salt, used both for preserving food and enhancing the taste. It’s a perfect fit for the festival!
