Following the huge success of the first two Food and Drink Festivals in 2021, Ashfield District Council is bringing the festival back to Hucknall on Sunday 21st August.

Ashfield District Council, with partners Discover Ashfield and Lincoln Green Brewery, are hosting the Food and Drink Festival on Hucknall High Street from 10am – 4pm.

The first Food and Drink Festival was held in August last year and was an instant hit, with many stall holders selling out by the afternoon thanks to the large numbers of visitors. So far this year, there are over 35 stalls lined up, selling a variety of artisan food, drinks, produce and gifts, with many of the popular traders from the first festival returning.

  • Sweet Spot Sweeties – pick n mix sweets including vegan, gluten free and diary free options
  • Talia’s Treats – homemade muffins, biscuits, chocolate and biscoff twists, Lemon Drizzle, and Carrot Cakes

There will be freshly made hot food including authentic Neapolitan pizzas from B’Reyt Dough, samosas and epic onion bhaji burgers from Chilli Guys, and Sicilian food from Heart of Sicily. Homemade gooey luxury brownies will be on offer from Blondie Brownie Bakes alongside stuffed cookie cups from Outlaw Cookie Club. There will be plenty to choose from for cider and ale lovers, with a variety of breweries exhibiting including Hucknall’s own Torkard Cider and Lincoln Green Brewery.

Cllr John Wilmott, Ward Councillor for Hucknall North, said:

“We are so excited to be able to bring the Food and Drink Festival back to Hucknall, after the first two events were such a success. We have attracted traders from all over the county, and beyond, to bring some of the best food and drinks to Hucknall.

“We hope that residents come out in their thousands again and support the small businesses that are attending the festival. The Food and Drink Festival follows a summer of fantastic free events from Ashfield District Council, and there’s still more to come with Ashfield Day and the Ashfield Film Festival in partnership with Arc Cinema!”
