Join the Cheltenham Food & Drink Festival in celebrating their 14th year with a great line-up of local producers, winemakers, brewers, and your favourite chefs in The Lansdown Kitchen theatre, along with exciting masterclasses all waiting to be explored by you.

Food: Local chefs from leading restaurants and hotels show-case local and regional food with inspiring demonstrations of creative cooking, sharing their passion for food and some of their cooking tips.

Wine: All wines taste better when you know the story behind them, and in these talks we aim to share the stories from the many vineyards from around the world. The talks & tastings are based on a first-come, first-seated basis on the day, so make sure you turn up early to grab yourself a spot.

Exhibitors: Explore the very best food and drink from Cheltenham and beyond!
