Bolton Food & Drink Festival

The Bolton Food and Drink Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary when it returns on August Bank Holiday, Friday 28 to Monday 31 August 2015.

Last year's event saw over 153,000 people flock to the festival which is now acknowledged as the biggest and best in the North West. This year promises to be even bigger and better with its big birthday celebrations.

Each year the town is packed with families and food fans from across the UK, all attracted by over 100 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 2014 by CBeebies star Katy Ashworth.
