The Cotswold Family Food and Farming Festival takes place this September
THE finishing touches are being put to a festival to celebrate food and farming in the Cotswolds.
THE Cotswold Family Food and Farming Festival takes place in Bourton-on-the-Water on Sunday, September 15.
It takes place at Bourton Vale Cricket Club and is part of a major fundraising campaign to build a new club pavilion.
Local food producers such as Love My Cow, Bensons Totally Fruity, and Dolcetti Ice Cream will be on hand with delicious food to sell with cream teas also available.
The cooking demonstration tent is sponsored by Chester House Hotel this year and will feature two demonstrations. TV farmer Adam Henson will work alongside one of the hotel's young chefs Jack Witcher and together they will select local produce from stalls around the site to create something delicious.
The second demonstration is with Italian chef Mike Samoila, from L'Anatra Italian kitchen who plans to create a dish using his favourite seafood ingredients.
Entertainment for children throughout the day includes a bouncy castle, a dog show, Tug-of-War and face painting and there will be live music from local bands including Folklaw, No Parkin’ Blues Band and Deb Harris.
The Vintage Tractor Company will have a number of vehicles on display and the Cotswold Farm Park will bring livestock so that children can meet the animals.
Organiser Anna MacCurrach said: “We are thoroughly looking forward to this year’s festival which promises to be our biggest and best yet. Being in the village means we have been able to get support from local businesses. I hope that we will be able to raise some much needed funds for the cricket pavilion.”
The event runs from 10.30am-4.30pm on September 15 and for a full programme go to thecotswoldfoodandfarmingfestival.com
