It’s not long now until the ever popular Droitwich Spa Food & Drink Festival returns, taking place this year in the Lido Park.
The event takes place on on Saturday, June 16 and Sunday, June 17. Steven Bailey-Carter, a finalist of the Great British Bake Off 2017, will officially open the festival together with Nigel Huddleston MP on the Saturday morning at 10am along with meeting and greeting festival goers.
There will be 100 food & drink stalls, which will feature a wide range of products many have won awards for the quality of their products. In addition nearly 90% are local as in within a 30 mile radius of Droitwich Spa.
The entertainment in the bandstand features local singers, bands and choirs so there will be lots to keep people entertained during the day.
In addition to Steven Bailey-Carter in the Cookery Theatre there will be local chefs and food producers giving demonstrations on a range of food dishes.
This year there is a special area for children’s entertainment and the majority of it is free thanks to sponsorship by Worcestershire County Council and Wychavon District Council. There will be bouncy castles, award-winning Madame Zucchini, Discovery History and Find Out What The Romans Ate when they lived in Droitwich, Face Painting and A Smoothie Bike so you can peddle away and make yourself a delicious fruit smoothie. Or try your hand at learning to play tennis on the tennis courts where Droitwich Tennis Club will be organising games on the brand new tennis courts.
This event looks set to be a great family day out in the fabulous setting of the historic Lido Park in our lovely town.
