The Festival of Food and Drink, being held at Clumber Park on 19th and 20th September, is adding a VIP experience to its menu for 2015.

A VIP ticket includes priority free parking right by the show entrance, fast track entry, and access to an exclusive VIP area where you can enjoy a sit down as well as some sampling. VIPs will also enjoy a very special ‘meet and greet’ with one of the Festival’s special guests.

This enhanced ticket costs just £15 in advance of the show opening with a limited number of tickets available so book now to avoid disappointment.

Now in its third year, the Festival of Food and Drink has quickly developed a fantastic following of top quality food and drink producers, artisan specialists and food experts, making it the region’s biggest event of its kind.

As well as award winning producers, there’s also a raft of features such as the Celebrity Cookery Theatre, where TV chefs and bakers will appear doing live demonstrations.

There are also interactive classes for both children and adults from the School of Artisan Food, covering everything from barbecuing to butchery for adults, and pizza, bread and ice cream making for the children.

With book signings, live music, a children’s play area, the Beautiful Things gift and homewares marquee, and plenty of food and drink to try and buy, it’s a feast for the senses and a great day out for all the family.

Ticket prices have also been frozen for the second year running with adult tickets starting from just £6 in advance with free entry for children aged six years and under. Family tickets are also available and advance bookings also received free car parking at Clumber Park. For more info, visit www.festivaloffoodanddrink.co.uk
