Food Festival Celebrates Successful Relaunch

Organisers of The Sheffield Food Festival gathered at The Old Workshop last night, a brand new bar in Neepsend, to celebrate a successful first year running the event.

Events Collective, run by Bob Worm and Laura Holmes took over the event from Hallam University for the first time in 2017, introducing an improved chef’s demo tent as well as the extremely popular Eats, Beats and Treats Village and partnerships with the likes of Henderson’s Relish, Thornbridge Brewery, Sentinel Brewhouse and Smoke BBQ.

Attendance at the three day festival was well over 44,000 and Bob expects that to increase next year as they add more elements to the event, with the help of a willing local foodie community.

“We’ve had a great reaction to this year’s event and we are very grateful to all the people who helped make it such an exciting weekend.” said Bob.

“Attendances were up, there was more going on and we have a great platform to build on for next year.”

Events Collective are also set to announce plans for a fireworks and lighting two day spectacular at Botanical Gardens – Illuminate The Gardens – keep an eye on Exposed for the latest news on that.
