Abergavenny Food Festival


Abergavenny will once again become a centre for culinary celebration in September. Famous faces such as Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Tom Kerridge have confirmed their appearances on the Borough Theatre stage, alongside chefs Darina Allen, Gill Meller, Olia Hercules and Freddy Bird.

Additional confirmed highlights include a pop-up feast by crowdfunded restaurant and food research hub Edinburgh Food Studio, and Ukrainian born chef Olia Hercules cooking up recipes from her soon to be released second cookbook KauKasis, at a special book-club dinner to include readings and stories from the author.

Expect Gill Meller cooking over fire, heritage skills workshops from Australian chef & author Rebecca Sullivan, an oyster masterclass from Simon Lamont, and seasonal British/Indian cookery classes from chef Romy Gill, MBE.

Visitors to this year’s festival should expect an expanded Producers’ Market showcasing the very best Great British food, the return of the night market on Saturday 16th, and activities for kids and families, including a new edible education space with plenty of opportunities to get little hands dirty.

The jam-packed weekend of food festivities will include an Abergavenny community feast on Thursday 14th September, pop-up feasts and evening celebrations on Friday 15th, and the Saturday night fireworks spectacular and party at Abergavenny Castle.

Abergavenny Food Festival 2017 is it’s 19th year running and reaches 35,000 people of a 2-day festival weekend.
