Bolton Food & Drink Festival 2016

The Bolton Food and Drink Festival celebrated its 10th anniversary last year.

The event saw over 200,000 people flock to the festival which is now acknowledged as the biggest and best in the North West.

Each year the town is packed with families and food fans from across the UK, all attracted by over 150 stalls and cookery demonstrations from top chefs such as James Martin, Gino D’Acampo, John Torode, Michael Caines and the Hairy Bikers. And there's plenty for the kids to do with street entertainers and a children’s zone, hosted in 2015 by CBeebies star Katy Ashworth.

Market Trader opportunity - Come and join the party and help us make 2016 a year to remember - applications are now open for quality food and drink and arts and craft traders.
