Exeter Food and Drink Festival Competition & our Top 5 Festival Tips

We thought we’d share our top 5 tips for the Exeter Festival of South West Food & Drink as well as treat you to a competition to win some tickets!

1. Come hungry! There are so many wonderful things to try and food stalls to grab a bite from, don’t waste your precious tummy room on a second rate breakfast at home!

2. Book VIP tickets – this allows you access to a VIP Lounge within the castle, where you can enjoy a quiet rest from the hustle and bustle of the festival. You can enjoy a mini spa treatment, a couple of complimentary drinks per day, and even some afternoon tea. It also allows you to priority over the front row sets in the cookery theatre!

3. Use public transport – there really is a whole day of fun to be had and, apart from being able to really enjoy some local beers, wines or cocktails, it’s good for the environment and the city traffic and no need to rush back to a parking lot.

4. Bring the children! The event is not just for adults. With plenty of tasters to treat their young tastebuds, and lots of activities, it really is a day out for everyone.

5. Want to see your favourite chef? Make sure you get in the festival cookery theatre in good time! It’s really popular, and sometimes they choose people to taste the results! Final schedule of top names are still to be announced but already include Michael Caines MBE, Mitch Tonks,  Josh Eggleton, Emily Scott and Dez Turland.

You can read Lauren’s 2016 write up and Chris’ 2017 write up to find out more and get a good flavour for what’s happening, although there are even more things going on this year!
