Eat, shop, drink, learn & enjoy – as Staffordshire’s original foodie gathering marks its 15th year. Set in the county’s ‘foodie capital’ with its host of pubs, bars and restaurants Stone Food & Drink Festival offers a whole week of foodie events in and around town, culminating in the ‘big weekend’ at Westbridge Park. Here you’ll find over 100 stalls offering everything from artisan produce to street food; a packed programme of free cookery demonstrations and Talks & Tastings sessions and the chance to get hands-on with food in culinary masterclasses. A great line-up of live music ensures a party vibe all weekend, while the ‘beer garden’ area sees Staffordshire brewers out in force  alongside cider producers and elegant gin and wine bars. For families, Panic Family Circus’ big top show offer great entertainment, alongside free kids’ cookery classes, with crafts and face painting also available.
