NORTH NOTTS will soon be welcoming the much-anticipated return of the North Notts Food Fest, taking place on Saturday 2 July from 9am-5pm at Worksop Market Square – featuring a packed day of food and drink-themed stalls and demonstrations.
The annual event hosted by North Notts BID features Rosemary Shrager as this year’s headline celebrity chef. A seasoned television broadcaster, teaching cookery on ‘Rosemary Shrager’s School for Cooks’ and ‘The Chopping Block’, Rosemary is also known for judging on ‘The Big Family Cooking Showdown’. Homegrown chefs from the county will also be in attendance, including Great British Menu contestant Harvey Pertolla, the ‘snobby butcher’ Johnny Pusztai and home economist and cook, Teresa Bovey.
As well as demonstrations from visiting and local chefs, BBQ demonstrations, food stalls and entertainment, families can also get involved in the ‘Great North Notts Baker’ competition, which will have a ‘Brilliantly British’ theme to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – with categories for both adults and children.
North Notts Food Fest is run by North Notts BID and is one of many events that it organises for the Nottinghamshire community. Voted for by local businesses through a postal ballot North Notts BID has drawn up a five year business plan, with the hopes of investing in and improving the local district.
Sally Gillborn, chief executive at North Notts BID, said: “The Food Fest is a staple event in the North Notts community and is a great showcase for our local culinary talents. We relish the opportunity to bring events such as the Food Fest to North Notts and look forward to bringing bigger and better spectacles if we are successful in securing a second term.”
Sally added: “The North Notts Food Fest is a great opportunity for local businesses to advertise all that they have to offer. The festival brings great exposure to a food-loving north Notts community and as an attendee it is a great free day out with family and friends.”
