Festival draws in the crowds

People watching a demonstration at a food festival

Strong wind and rain failed to deter foodies from enjoying the 2019 Farnham Food and Drink Festival. 

Over 120 stalls lined Castle Street and The Borough, selling some of the very best local food and drink alongside produce from further afield. There was plenty of freshly cooked food for the hungry shopper as well as treats to take home and enjoy on another day. 

Throughout the day talented chefs and producers shared their knowledge at the food theatre. Visitors picked up tips on flavour combinations for macarons, saw Asian cooking the simple way, learned about making gourmet marshmallow and ideas for a vegan breakfast.

Councillor Alan Earwaker, Farnham Town Council’s Lead Member for Tourism and Events said: “Over the past 11 years, Farnham’s Food and Drink Festival has grown to become one of the largest in the area. It has all the necessary ingredients to make it a very popular day out for people from Farnham and beyond. 

“For events such as the Food and Drink Festival to happen, we rely on support from many different people. I would like to thank all the stallholders for coming along with their delicious food and drink, the volunteers who helped manage the event and our sponsors whose support means we can run this event every year and keep costs down.”

To reduce the number of vehicles needing to enter the town centre, Farnham Town Council organised a free shuttle bus service to take people to and from the Festival.

The 2019 Food and Drink Festival was sponsored by The Castle Inn, Farnham Castle, BBS for Magimix, Durham House Chiropractic Clinic and Taylor Wimpey.
