Tideswell celebrates food from local to global at the sixth annual Tideswell Food Festival

ffflier2016 FoodFest 2016On Saturday 30 April 2016, between 10 am and 4 pm, Tideswell welcomes a wide variety of food stallholders to celebrate local, national and international cuisine for the sixth annual Tideswell Food Festival. In the streets of this beautiful Peak District village, there will be around 60 different stalls showcasing artisan food and drink from Derbyshire and beyond, with hot and cold treats from food cultures as near as the Peak District and as far as Borneo, Laos and Russia to enjoy on the day. And there will be plenty of lovely things to take home from bread to brownies, coffee to cakes, and pies to pastries. Local shops, cafes and pubs will be open for business, and there will be a chance to explore the Parish Church (our very own Cathedral of the Peak), and sample local people’s favourite recipes in Nibbles in the Nave.

But it’s about more than just food. There will be family entertainment including Tideswell Band and Tideswell Singers, folk from the Bailey Sisters, and acapella all-female barbershop singing from the quartet Incognito. You can meet local artists and buy their creations at Crafts in the Chancel, in the Parish Church, and visit Tideswell Kitchen Garden to find out more about growing food, buy plants, take part in a tool swap, or take a tour.

There will be free parking, including some disabled parking with flat access, and maps with details of stalls and events will be available on the day.

Tideswell Kitchen Garden at the 2016 Food Festival

Tideswell Kitchen Garden #2 Tideswell Kitchen Garden #5There will be a variety of activities on offer in the Tideswell Kitchen Garden at the 2016 Tideswell Food Festival on 30 April, including a quiz and prize draw, seed planting, a plant sale, tool recycling, and music from Tideswell Singers.


The volunteer Kitchen Gardeners are available to give you a tour, and you can do some gardening too if it takes your fancy!

Tideswell Kitchen Garden #3Tideswell Kitchen Garden was established as part of the Taste Tideswell project, launched when the village was awarded BBC Village SOS funding. The Garden is run by a group of volunteers under the ‘Friends of Taste Tideswell’ label, supported by a Derbyshire Dales community grant.

The Garden is an open access space for all local people, and supplies Tideswell’s Wednesday Lunch Club with vegetables, fruit and herbs for the dishes it serves each fortnight. All volunteers are free to help themselves to produce grown in the garden, and monthly meet-ups are held at 10 am on the first Saturday of each month, to supplement time spent in the garden individually/in smaller groups. For more news, join the ‘Tideswell Kitchen Garden’ group on Facebook, contact Helen Grainger at or call Judy Cooke on 01298 872408.
