Tideswell Food Festival, 2012 – a fantastic success

Food Festival Crowds 2012Tideswell’s 2012 Food Festival proved to be an outstanding success. The day long Food Festival ran on 5th of May and attracted hundreds of keen food loving visitors from far and wide. Over fifty stalls lined Church Street and Fountain Street selling a fantastic variety of food from African jerk chicken to chilli cheese, from chocolate to cupcakes. Tideswell-based community groups also took out stalls.

During the day, singers, dancers and guizers entertained the crowds who weren’t even deterred by the brief snow(!) shower. The village traders were just as busy as the stall holders, many of whom sold out quite early on in the day.

The Tideswell School of Food, held cookery demonstrations and wine tasting throughout the day and hundreds of folk went on organised tours to learn more about the school and why we’re here. The community kitchen received a steady stream of visitors keen to learn more about what to plant and when. Meanwhile Taste Tideswell’s education office Michelle, ran children’s competitions which proved popular. High Peak Radio broadcast from the festival all morning.

Tideswell School of Food DemoThe Food Festival was organised this year by Phil Walker from Tideswell Stores and other traders with the support of the Taste Tideswell staff.

Feedback received has been overwhelmingly positive, many traders commenting that it was the best Food Festival they’d ever been to.
