Get ready for food fair

Businesses are being encouraged to snap up a stall at a prestigious food and drink fair next month.

The tenth annual Derbyshire Food Fair is being held in the grounds of Hardwick Hall on Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 22.

With more than 10,000 people visiting last year’s event, it is a great opportunity for traders and producers to highlight their business to people and tourists from across the country.

So far more than 70 businesses – making everything from pickles and cakes to wine and cheese – have signed up to take part.

Cabinet member for regeneration, Councillor Simon Spencer, said: “It’s fantastic that so many food and drink businesses are keen to get involved with this prestigious event. It is now firmly on Derbyshire’s culinary calendar and we’re keen for even more people to take part.”
