New Fantastic Food Festival Announced In Victoria Park, Bath

A festival for food lovers, family and friends

Fantastic Food Festivals will descend on the historical city of Bath this summer on Friday 29th July to Sunday 31stJuly at the iconic Royal Victoria Park. Expect a gastronomic weekend of interactive masterclasses from a passionate community of talented food and drink experts and celebrity chefs. It’s a celebration of some of the very best local and national produce from a wide range of fabulous stallholders to enjoy on the day and take home and a flurry of entertainment in the Jubilee Garden overlooking the beautiful vista of Bath. Visit to book tickets.

Engaging experiences will feature throughout this three-day event which is guaranteed to inspire and entertain even the most accomplished cook; try a pasta making experience with Bath’s very own Federico from Pasta Uliana featuring a very special session with Italian legend Gennaro Contaldo. Join The Great British Bake Off’s Karen Wright for a baking masterclass and TV chef Dean Edwards will be cooking up a storm in the Festival Kitchen. Top Nutritionist Eva Humphries is on hand to help you whip up an indulgent but healthy treat or two and it’s definitely shaken not stirred in TV’s Andy Clarke’s cocktail class. For something completely unique, look out for George Egg – a one man comedy show about how to cook with tools!

Family friendly shows, activities and splendid Jubilee celebrations and entertainment run throughout all of the Fantastic Food Festivals and include children’s favourite, ‘The Gastronaut’ Stefan Gates with the ‘Mindblowing Food & Science Show’ and something very special for our four-legged friends – ‘Dogology’. An energetic team of entertainers, actors and playworkers from the renowned Super Pirates will also be on hand to put a smile on the children’s faces. Why not book a table in the Jubilee Garden – relax and enjoy the music, some delicious food and drink with a fantastic atmosphere; surely this is what summer is all about!

A new feature for this year’s Platinum Jubilee is the Artisan Coffee Co. Jubilee Garden – the ideal place to dance the day away to vintage trio, ‘The Bluebird Belles’, for ‘Twistina the amazing balloon lady’ to rustle up balloon creations for all ages and to treat yourself to a beautifully British cream tea, a glass of fizz or a perfectly poured pint from the bar. Get your daily coffee fix from the Artisan Coffee Co. truck or sample one of their decadent Espresso martinis.

Visitors will have the opportunity to win a place at the tasting table of the Festival Kitchen at selected demos and there’s some great giveaways, including a hamper featuring a range of delicious produce from stallholders.  New for 2022 – ticketholders can pre-book seats for free at the front to see their favourite chef!
