Newsletter 7: Six weeks to go

This year the Exeter Festival of South West Food and Drink will take place over the early May bank holiday weekend (Saturday 29th April to Monday 1st May). Day tickets, weekend passes and VIP tickets are available to buy from Ticket Factory or the Exeter Phoenix.

We have lots planned for the whole family over the three-day weekend, including sausage making with Darts Farm Master Butchers in the 'Food is fun' teepees, our BBC Devon Festival Question Time with hot topics and interesting panelists alongside cookery demonstrations in the Festival Cookery Theatre with chefs from all over the South West.


We've teamed up with Two Bridges Hotel (member of Devon Hotels) and Dartmoor Brewery, to offer one lucky person a weekend break in Devon and tickets to the Exeter Festival of South West Food & Drink 2017. For your chance to win, visit the Two Bridges Hotel website.

(Closing date Friday 31st March 2017 at 5.30pm).

Tickets available for the 7 Chefs Dinner

The annual 7 Chefs Dinner is taking place on Wednesday 26th April 2017 at the Exeter Golf and Country Club. Led by highly acclaimed Michael Caines MBE, the evening will consist of a seven course dinner including canapes on arrival. Each chef will introduce their dish and each will showcase some of the highest quality produce from this region.

Tickets are priced at £120 per person, and will include a carefully selected wine flight to compliment the courses.

Each week we are announcing a different chef who will cook a course for the dinner - see our website for the list so far!
