Carlisle Foodies Fest will return to the City Centre for three days this July and will celebrate all that's great about Cumbrian Food and Drink. Featuring a mix of local producers and traders, as well as a host of international gastronomic delights, the Foodies Fest really will have it all.

Running alongside the Festival will be a series of cookery demonstrations and programme of entertainment for both adults and children. From butchery master classes to cocktail making lessons, there is sure to be something to appeal to the discerning foodie.

The centerpiece of this year’s event will be a series of demonstrations by multi Michelin star chef Jean-Christophe Novelli, which will take place on Saturday 22 July. Not only will Jean-Christophe be sharing his passion and Gaelic charm during his demonstrations, he will also be meeting traders and members of the public throughout the day as he samples the delights that the Festival has to offer.

Jean-Christophe Novelli’s demonstrations will take place in a marquee on Saturday 22 July, at 11:00-12:00, 13:00-14:00 and 15:00-16:00. Tickets will cost £5 per person, and are available via Skiddle (see web link in contact details).

Not restricted to gastronomic delights, the Festival will also feature a range of liquid offerings to tickle the taste buds. Whether it be traditional German beer, ice cold Sangria or even locally sourced craft ales, expect to see it all at this year’s event.
