foodies festival returns for may bank holiday

It’s back! Yep, that’s right,@FoodiesFestival, aka Gastro Glasto, aka FUN, is landing in Preston Park this bank holiday weekend.

With the results of Brighton’s Best top 20 restaurants now in, it’s the perfect chance to see some top Brighton chefs in action: you can expect mouthwatering demos from a whole host of local legends, including Alun Sperring (@thechillipickle), Michael Bremner (@chef64degrees), Duncan Ray (@littlefishhove) and @kennytutt (have you seen the news about his new projects?), as well as MasterChef champs Daniel Lee and Tom Rhodes.

That’s before you eat and drink your way round the produce from over 200 artisan food and drink exhibitors, try your luck against chilli eating champ Shahina Waseem, enjoy baking, wine and cocktail-making masterclasses or just soak up the atmosphere and the live music (courtesy of Scouting For Girls, The Feeling and, um, some of the boys from Blue).

If you’re quick, you can enter our flash competition over on Instagram to be in with the chance of bagging a pair of full weekend tickets. If you don’t win this time, you can use the code FOODIES25 to get 25 percent off advance tickets.
