Discover worldwide flavours at Nelson Food and Drink Festival on Saturday 7thSeptember.

Sponsorship from local company, Petty Real ™, has enabled the event to take place for a 5thyear. Nelson will play host to a fusion of delicious delicacies inspired from around the world. From Spicy Spanish Sausages, Authentic Asian Adzuki and Indian Inspired Idli to Chocolate Churros and German Götterspeise… a mouth-watering recipe for roaring success.

Live cookery demonstrations in the demo kitchen with Richard Fox will keep audiences entertained throughout the day. Elsewhere at the event, as in previous years, there will be fantastic family fun for everyone to enjoy including fairground rides and beautiful bhangra dancing.

In the week leading up to the event, a colouring competition will be delivered to all local schools for children to complete and hand in at the event to be in with a chance of winning a hamper of sweet treats.

Charlotte Hagan, Chair of Petty Real ™, commented:

Celebrity Chef, Richard Fox

“It’s fantastic to see the Food and Drink Festival returning to Nelson this year and we’re proud to be sponsors. It’s an important event for the local community, and as a company that established locally and has been in the immediate area of Nelson for generations, it’s a fantastic opportunity for us to sponsor. As a long-standing family business, we are aware of how vital the local community have been in our 90 years of success, so it only felt right to be giving something back.”

Zahida, Event Director, commented:

“Last year exceeded 9000 visitors and was our biggest and best event to date, we’re expecting the same success this year and cannot wait to invite everyone into Nelson for the day.”
