Festivalgoers can look forward to a great outdoor music and street food dining experience, coupled with the excitement of browsing, buying and tasting in the adjoining massive marquee.
Wales’ top television chef and festival patron Angela Gray will be bringing her expertise and knowledge to the festival’s Food Theatre. She’s looking forward to hosting a Masterchef-style cook-off between local personalities, which proved such a crowd-pleaser at the 2013 festival.
Festival favourites Ludovic Dieumegard of The Harbourmaster, Aberaeron and Anand George of The Purple Poppadom restaurant, Cardiff, will also be cooking up a storm, together with artisan baker Vicky North of Vic North Cookery School, near Cardigan and S4C baker Rebecca Murphy. There will also be Talks and Tastes sessions highlighting some of the products on offer at the festival.
“In the words of one of last year’s happy stallholders, the festival creates a Mardi Gras atmosphere,” said festival chairman Huw Jones. “We’re looking forward to another brilliant event with that unique Narberth mix of good food, great talks and demonstrations and entertainment for all, in a relaxing atmosphere.”
Joint patron of the event is Mediterranean cuisine expert Elisabeth Luard, who is full of praise for the festival. “Narberth Food Festival has got it just right. It’s local, it’s friendly, the food is really good and there’s enough space to move around and meet your friends.”
There are also free activities for children and a full programme of live music and entertainment, with the eclectic line-up including strolling players Fiddlebox, retro band Tinplate Tiger, harpist Harriet Earis, vocalists Tansy Lloyd Benson, Kara Watts and Jess Dano, the bluesy Davey Jones duo and acoustic artiste Paul Reggie.
The event has twice scooped Gold for Best Event in the Pembrokeshire Tourism Awards and was also awarded Silver in 2013 for its facilities for the disabled.
These include British Sign Language-interpretation for demos and talks, and the welcoming of a group of hearing-impaired youngsters - via the Welsh branch of the National Deaf Children’s Society Cymru - to the Festival’s Education Day curtain-raiser.
Narberth Food Festival takes place on the Town Moor, Narberth from 10am-6pm on Saturday, 26th September and from 10am-4pm on Sunday, 27th September.
