This year is the 10th anniversary of the Festival which will bring together a huge selection of edible delights from some of the country’s finest producers, many from the East Midlands region including the local, traditional Melton Mowbray Pork Pies and Stilton Cheese.

Visitors can enjoy a whole host of live demonstrations from celebrity chefs and regional cooks in the Aga Rangemaster Cookery Theatre or can roll up their sleeves and join in the activities in the popular Family, Food and Fun Zone.

Tickets are priced at £6 on the day or £5 in advance from www.goleicestershire.com or in person from Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe in Melton Mowbray or the Visit Leicester centre in Leicester.
