This event has now passed – please check back for new dates soon.

Hardwick Hall – the stunning Elizabethan country house based in Chesterfield – will host the Great British Food Festival 2024.

A feast for the eyes and the stomach, this is an event for the whole family to enjoy. There will be chef demos, an artisan market, street food, live music, children’s cookery and foraging walks. Plus, you can take part in a selection of ‘Men V Food’ competitions and sample entries after the judging of a huge Cake Off!

There’s plenty for kids to get involved with, including circus workshops, a treasure hunt, wacky races and more. Plus, Friday is family day, so kids go free!

Throughout the day there will also be live music from top bands so you can do some shopping, grab some food and have a well-earned relax with a local beer (or two!) whilst listening to some great entertainment.
