Mold Food and Drink Festival 2017 – food lovers’ festival

Amazing foodie weekend Mold Food and Drink Festival, held on New Street car park over the weekend of 16 and 17 September 2017, is set to be the biggest and best yet!

Renowned as one of the best food festivals in Wales, Mold Food and Drink Festival celebrates its twelfth year on 16 to 17 September and combines the finest in food, drink, cookery demos, and live music with all the feel-good atmosphere you could wish for.

The Festival attracts over 13,500 visitors and more than 140 producers from the local area and further afield, making it one of the biggest in Wales.

As well as the tempting array of food and drink on offer, visitors will be treated to a host of inspirational cookery demonstrations by celebrity and local chefs in the large cookery theatre.

Headlining Sunday’s line up is French chef, Jean-Christophe Novelli. The multi-Michelin star is famous worldwide for his cooking artistry and unique healthy cooking techniques. Passionate about passing on his knowledge – his cookery school, The Novelli Academy, has been voted amongst the ‘Top 25 Cookery Schools in the World’.

On Saturday, the acclaimed food writer and TV baker Jo Wheatley takes to the stage for three baking masterclasses. Jo’s career took off after winning the Great British Bake Off 2011. Since then she has set up a cookery school which was listed in The Guardian’s Top Five UK Baking Schools.

Some of the region’s top chefs from local restaurants will also be appearing over the weekend.

There is plenty in store for children too. The popular Children’s Cookery School & Food Science Lab is back with experimental cooking. Children will prepare and cook a variety of tasty dishes, learn about healthy eating and have fun with ‘explosive’ experiments!

New for this year will be Tesco’s Farm to Fork Healthy Eating Trails providing fun, free sessions for children to learn about healthy food choices and nutritional information. They will taste and make healthy snacks and each child will receive a goody bag to take home.

There will also be new interactive demos by local producers including sausage making, apple pressing and candle rolling. Other attractions include a bee-keeping exhibition and honey show, children’s play area, face painting, and birds of prey.

Throughout the weekend live music will be performed on the outdoor stage by a variety of talented local bands and musicians.

The Festival is held in the New Street car park, Mold. Doors open 10am – 5pm on Saturday (outdoor entertainment, food and drink until 8pm) and 10am-5pm on Sunday. Tickets are £7 for adults, £3 for children (aged 4-13, under 3s free), and £15 for a family of 2 adults and 2 children.

On Saturday afternoon and all day on Sunday the butchers from Swan’s Farm Shop will be showcasing their sausage-making skills with demos in the Clwydian Food Trail area.
