BURLEY FOOD & DRINK FESTIVAL 2020
Returning for its second year, we are very excited to announce the Burley Food and Drink Festival is back! Due to the success of last year’s festival, we are pleased to announce that we are still going ahead in September this year we will be celebrating all things local.
Surrounded by beautiful woodland scenery, the weekend festival celebrates and brings together high-quality local producers for a jam packed weekend of artisan food, drink, artistic creations and the very best local musicians.
Across the two days, Burley's beautiful Manor Park will be transformed by stalls overflowing with local cheeses, meats, artisan breads, and NEW to 2020 - the Roots Vegetable Patch, our organic vegan and veggie corner! Alongside many many more exciting flavours and products to make your mouth water at the thought!
If local gins or ales are your tipple, then you will be in the right place as our local drink producers are bringing samples for you to taste and even savour at home. Come check out our Outside INN Bar, amongst others, offering local ales, ciders, gins and wines. Also for 2020 we are introducing cocktail competitions, showcases from well-known mixologists plus gin workshops are some of the sparkling elements planned for this year’s event.
And once you’ve drank and eaten until your heart content, you can while away a few hours to some fabulous acoustic sounds from our NEW InTree-Ducing Stage, set under the backdrop of the beautiful old oak tree. The Main ‘Haystack’ Stage will come to life, hosting a variety of local bands, playing everything from jazz, blues, soul and funk to get up and dance through the weekend.
It's not all about food & drink, we've added a designated kid’s area - our LIL Scrumpers with free workshops, storytelling, face painters, plus trampolines and castles for the little people to bounce through the bank holiday.
Behind the big oak tree, in a relax ambient setting, you will find the mystic area, inviting you to find your future with one of the tarot readers.
Find your inner zen or immerse yourself with the enchanting and mystical folk selling local Burley trinkets and keepsakes.
Around the village the festival is looking to hold a range of activities, such as a window display. trails and competitions for children. The Festival wishes to enhance people’s experience of Burley by encouraging people to visit shops and businesses, partaking in all the forest has to offer.
Local artists will be showcasing over the weekend in our Forest Craft Marquee, with workshops that can be booked for children and adults looking to expand their skills.
If that wasn’t enough, the vintage arena will have a variety of vintage cars, clothes and collectables.
