Sheffield Food Festival 2015

Eat, drink and shop at The Sheffield Food Festival on May Spring Bank Holiday Weekend 2015.

The Sheffield Food Festival is back to celebrate the fresh produce on offer this Spring. Diverse restaurants, bars, shops, cafes and delis from throughout the city will be represented in the free event that sprawls across the heart of the city centre. Tthe festival will be running from Saturday May 23 to Monday May 25.

2015 promises to be tastier than ever with stalls upon stalls of artisan and street food traders. You can also grab the chance to learn new culinary skills in the festival demo tent where budding chefs and novices alike will demonstrate their skills and offer up the chance to taste their creations.
And don’t miss BBC Radio Sheffield’s Ready, Steady, Cook! competitions each day. See who can stand the heat, with presenters and chefs pitting against each other in fast paced cooking battles.

The Whirlow Hall Farm pop-up farmyard and lounge is perfect for children to nestle amongst the hay bales and listen to BBC Radio Sheffield presenters reading The Little Red Hen. Children can also take part in mini pizza making, wok cooking demos and pork recipe tasting sessions with Ladies In Pigs, amongst other activities.

And for the grown-ups, don’t forget you can wash it all down with Peace Gardens’ mini beer fest, curated by the Sheffield Breweries Cooperative. Live music and entertainment from various locations across The Peace Gardens Millenium Gallery and the Town Hall Square will take you through to the end of the day.
