Nightingale House to serve up another tasty Food Festival

The countdown is well and truly on as one of the most popular events in the community calendar returns for another year.

Visitors to Wrexham are in for a tasty treat on the 13th and 14th May as the poplar Wrexham Food and Drink Festival descends on the grounds of Llwyn Isaf for the fifth year running.

The two-day food extravaganza looks set to be bigger and better than ever before with something on offer for everyone and a wealth of traders selling everything from street food, confectionary, cakes and locally brewed ales.

Organisers, Nightingale House Hospice, say food lovers will be spoilt for choice with everything from jams and chutneys to burgers, cheese, ice cream and local beers and cider all set to be on offer.

And those looking food with a distinctly international flavour won’t be going home unhappy, either – there will be plenty of classic and global cooking going on in the demonstration kitchen as well as the chance to sample freshly made paella courtesy of Su Cassa.

Other exhibitors include the ever popular Orchard Pigs and their tractor wheel pies Snowdonia Cheese, Chilly Cow Ice Cream and Patchwork Pate.

For the real ale lovers out there we will have local brewers such as Big Hand Brewery, who will be launching the very first Nightingale House Beer, T-WREX as well as Wrexham Lager and Rosie’s Triple D Cider.

Perhaps the biggest attraction will be celebrity chef and former Coronation Street star, Sean Wilson who is back by popular demand to show off his cooking skills in Sunday’s demonstration marquee.

As if all that wasn’t enough this year’s Food Festival will offer free parking in all council car parks courtesy of Wrexham County Borough Council as well as live music from FOCUS Wales and the Tenovus Cancer Choir.

Eleri Smith of Nightingale House said: “The Wrexham Food and Drink Festival is now in its fifth year and is a firm favourite in our community calendar, bringing visitors from far and wide.

“The complement of food and drink exhibitors, interactive cooking demonstrations and live music makes this a great family day out and we hope to see plenty of people enjoying the sights again this year.”

The Wrexham Food and Drink Festival will take place on Saturday 13th May from 10am until 5pm and Sunday 14th May from 10am until 4pm. All profits will go directly towards patient care at Nightingale House.
