THE NELSON FOOD AND DRINK FESTIVAL TAKES PLACE ON SATURDAY 9TH SEPTEMBER FROM 10AM TO 4PM.jpg.jpg

The eagerly anticipated Nelson Food and Drink Festival will return this Saturday (9th September) from 10am-4pm, taking place in Nelson Town Centre.

Organised by Nelson Town Council, the event is free-to-attend and will include a fantastic range of food and drink stalls, as well as live cooking demonstrations and family fun entertainment.

Local Caribbean chef Mama Shar will be taking to the main cooking demonstration area at both 11:30am and 2pm, where she will be wowing the crowds with a delicious Caribbean dish of rice and peas, as well as dumplings and spicy fried chicken.

Mama Shar will also be launching her brand new book ‘Cooking the Caribbean Way’ which includes a collection of authentic Caribbean recipes, passed down from generation to generation, but with a unique twist. Whether you are a seasoned Caribbean cook or a novice, this book is a must have.

Solo Pizza will also be running two cooking demonstrations of their own, with a live masterclass of authentic Italian pizza at 1pm, and a mouthwatering, authentic pasta special at 3pm.

Alongside the demonstrations, there will be over 30 food and drink stalls, offering a wide range of food and drink including cheese, ice cream, coffee, sweet treats and much more.

With free parking available at the town centre’s short stay car parks, visitors are being encouraged to come and enjoy the event as a family, with an action packed day which also includes Bollywood dancers, a henna artist and the grand opening of the event at 10am.

Local schoolchildren from all Nelson primary schools and nurseries have also been busy ahead of the festival. As part of the event, Nelson Town Council have delivered competition posters to local schools, where the children have been challenged to draw their favourite food – with the winning entry receiving a hamper delivered to school!

Entries can be handed in to the main festival marquee on Saturday at 10am.

Coun Rehan Hanif, chair of Nelson Town Council, said: “We are so excited to welcome the return of the Nelson Food & Drink Festival to our town this weekend.

“It is a wonderful community event, packed full of great food and drink, as well as exciting cooking demonstrations and entertainment for all the family.

“With good weather forecast for the day and the event free-to-attend, we would like to invite everyone to come and enjoy a day to remember here in Nelson.”
