Banbury “Taste Of Spring” Food Festival 2018
The Banbury “Taste Of Spring” is a brand new food festival which although not a large as the main  Food Fair which is later in the year will showcase a range of Artisan Produces in Market street and the Market Square and will celebrates the wide range of high quality food and drink produced in the town and surrounding area.  It explores the art of food and drink-making, and provides a wonderful opportunity for people to experience the friendly and sociable atmosphere that accompanies eating and drinking.
Many of the exhibitors are small, independent producers who specialize in non-supermarket type food, beer, wine and cider – and visitors to the fair are able to view, sample and purchase some of England’s best and tastiest food and drink. 
 

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD…
….what, you’re bored already? Fine. Then we’ll have to give you something else to keep you entertained. 
Our festival is all about artisans, so we’ve invited some of Shropshire’s finest craftspeople to exhibit their wares. They’ll be demonstrating, talking and selling throughout the weekend; explaining how they use natural materials to create works of art.
There’ll also be plenty of talks and demonstrations. You’ll be able to ‘have-a-go’ at baking and learn some of the skills that local food producers use day-in and day-out to make scrumptious food. Some of our finest chefs will stage demonstrations; where you can see how they create their award-winning dishes.
There’ll be plenty more besides. Kids’ entertainment and music will also be on the bill – and we’ve also teamed up with the Shrewsbury Film Society, who will be screening foodie films at The Hive, in Belmont, throughout the weekend.

The main ring attractions last year were very well received.  It was a privilege to have Rocco Dettori  as a jockey in the Shetland Pony Grand National – he certainly has his father’s talent to win races.  Jamie Squibb gave a jaw dropping display and as he could only do his ‘wet weather’ show, we have booked him again for 2018 and hopefully we will be even more amazed by his dare devil jumps.

This year the Three Shires Cup was introduced in the cattle section of the show, together with Hanbury and Moreton in the Marsh shows.  This proved to be a success with more dairy cattle being brought forward which is lovely to see.  Thanks to all who take the time and effort to prepare, transport and show their livestock at the Show, this is a great attraction to our visitors and we receive many comments on how lovely it is to get so near to the stock.

I hope you all managed to pay a visit to the Horse Field, which continues to put on a great show of horses of all kinds.  If you have never visited this section I would urge you to do so as there is plenty to see in this great section of the show.

Around the showground there was also a great “buzz”. Pentabus Theatre were a new addition and the return of the Panic Family Circus continues to be a great entertainment for families of all age complimenting the activities on the Village Green.  We hope to continue to develop the family picnic area as we need to encourage this age group.  On this note, for the 2018 show we are changing the entrance prices and children of primary school age will be admitted free as long as they are accompanied by a paying adult.

  
The Banbury Food Fair  now in its 7th year celebrates the wide range of high quality food and drink produced in the town and surrounding area.  It explores the art of food and drink-making, and provides a wonderful opportunity for people to experience the friendly and sociable atmosphere that accompanies eating and drinking.
Many of the exhibitors are small, independent producers who specialize in non-supermarket type food, beer, wine and cider – and visitors to the fair are able to view, sample and purchase some of England’s best and tastiest food and drink. 
 
Don’t worry about your Sunday lunch on this day, come down and treat yourself to some of the fabulous and delicious hot food, you won’t be disappointed ….. or hungry !
During the day you will pick up culinary hints and tips in the demonstration marquee. Demonstrations are held throughout the day, a great part of the day to pick up new skills or ask the demonstration chefs a question.
