Stratford Food Festival

EVENT 21/09/2019 – 22/09/2019

Food lovers are in for a tasty treat at this year’s Stratford’s Town Centre Food Festival where a new car is just one of the things on the menu.

The Town Centre Food Festival, organised by Stratforward Business Improvement District (BID) and sponsored by Loxleys Restaurant and Wine Bar, returns on 21 and 22 September and features a veritable feast of culinary delights on High Street, Henley Street and Bridge Street.

There’s plenty to get your teeth into from learning top tips at the demo theatre to sampling the live music around town; browsing the bustling 120-stall food market; getting hands-on at the free workshops right here in Bell Court; or exploring the town’s restaurants, cafes and pubs on the Food & Ale Trails.

As well as demonstrations and plenty of delicious food, guests to Bell Court can also enjoy a weekend filled with music. See our timetables below.

Sunday 22nd September Workshops in BELL COURT – FREE!

Book at the festival or just turn up on the day! Book at the Site Office on the corner of Henley Street and Meer Street, between 2pm and 6pm on Saturday 21st or on Sunday 22nd at The Workshop in Bell Court from 10am.
