Taste Ulverston @ Ulverston
May 26 – May 27 all-day

 

The Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 of the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May is when Taste Cumbria comes to Ulverston, Cumbria’s ‘festival town’.

Every year we host a big producers’ market, loads of free expert demonstrations, a hot food court, and plenty to keep even the littlest foodies happy. With the generous support of Ulverston Town Council, plus brilliant partners like the team from Ford Park and the local businesses, this is a great place to take the family.

New for 2017 was an exclusive pop-up restaurant, courtesy of Michelin-starred chef Kevin Tickle from The Forest Side at Grasmere. He and his team transformed the Hoad, Ulverston’s famous monument, for an intimate dinner for invited guests. This year, there are plans to launch an Ulverston pop-up on a much bigger scale – though the venue is still under wraps.

The Great British Food Festival @ Harewood Hall
May 26 – May 28 all-day

The perfect recipe For a fun, foodie, family day out!

So why do so many of our visitors come back every year?
Is it for the fantastic food and drink? Delectable delights and tasty treats from our wonderful street food vendors and amazing artisan producers. To polish up their culinary skills with our free Chef Demos? Or, to get stuck in with the Bake-Off stars on our free, interactive Bake Stage? Or maybe, it’s our cocktail of niche bars, with their tempting tipples, ready to enjoy?

Perhaps it’s for the memorable moments, soaking up the atmosphere, chilling to some fabulous live music, sampling the Cake-Off creations, being entertained by the (slightly crazy) Men v Food warriors, all the while enjoying the stunning surroundings of some of the country’s most beautiful stately homes? Oh and yes, we do make sure their children are blissfully amused, and the dog can come too!

Don’t forget you can get free food festival ticket if you enter our ‘Cake Off’!

But that’s just what we think! Come along, take a big bite of the action and see if you agree!!
