Food & Drink Festival 4-6 May 2019

NB All 2019 details are TBC at this stage.

The 5th Food and Drink Festival over May Day at Muncaster Castle! A three day celebration of good food, drink and all things Cumbrian, over the Bank Holiday weekend.

With celebrity chefs, cookery demos, entertainment for all ages and of course the food! To sample, to buy to eat and to take home for later. The Festival welcomes a range of specialist and gourmet food and drink suppliers from Cumbria and Northern Britain, plus a selection of craft and giftware to complete your retail experience.

At a time of year when Muncaster’s gardens look their best, this is a brilliant time to visit. Normal entrance charges apply (no additional cost for the Festival), FREE to Friends of Muncaster.
