Saturday 23rd July 2016
This year’s festival will once again host a diverse range of stalls, including hot, freshly prepared food to try on the day, cakes, ice creams and other treats, a great selection of local food and drink to take home, as well as arts, crafts and local organisations. Chef demonstrations throughout the day will inspire you to try new recipes using ingredients that you can buy at the festival.
Once your belly is full, our entertainment tent has a full bill including story telling from the Goblin Circus, local bands and musicians, and, back by popular demand after their runaway success last year, Tribal Unity –Lampeter’s very own belly dancers. In addition, for the very first time, we have a short open mic slot to round off the day.
You can also visit the People’s Market which, for this day only, will relocate from Victoria Hall to the Food Festival. Here, you can sample purchase local cheese, fruit, vegetables, chutneys, jams, cakes, pork, beef, mushrooms, glassware, unique clothing, wood crafts and more.
Abz Love, from BBC’s Abz on the Farm, and his partner Vicky Fallon will open the Festival at 10.30am.
For the little ones, there will again be donkey rides as well as bouncy castles (thanks to Lampeter Round Table) as well as possibly a surprise treasure hunt.
Lampeter Food Festival is a large event for a small group of voluntary directors to organise and so we are on the lookout for more volunteers to help plan the event and do jobs on the day. No matter how much time you can offer, any help will be gratefully accepted.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Festival.
