The popular Petersfield Festival of Food & Drink will return to the town square and High Street in June, with organisers promising a “smorgasbord of culinary entertainment”.
The 2012 event will take place on the weekend of June 23-24 – later than last year owing to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in the town earlier that month.
This year Philippa Steward and Bill Oversby, partners in Greatham-based business SO Marketing will be aided by Petersfield-based photographer Chris Pearsall and his wife Karen and daughter Sarah, who were so swept up in the emotional success of last year’s event, when more than 150 stalls thronged the town centre, that they wanted to contribute to the organising.
Steward explained: “We intend to keep the format much the same as last year with live music on Saturday night after the market traders leave the square and then have street kitchen demonstrations on stage on the Sunday.
“We have just started taking bookings and it is looking already like it will be even more popular with stallholders than last year. It will be a real smorgasbord of culinary entertainment, fun, competition, education and, of course, tasting…”
? Stalls for the Petersfield Festival of Food & Drink start at just £50 (plus vat), and anybody wishing to book or learn more about the festival or the competitions, or wishing to sponsor any of the various elements, should call organisers Philippa Steward and Bill Oversby on 01420 538210.
