Buy ticketsThe Forest Showcase Food & Drink Festival has attracted lots of producers showcasing the best in local, seasonal and speciality food and drink. It’s a great opportunity to get a real taste of the best of the Forest of Dean & surrounding areas – sample, enjoy and buy.

With Great Britain’s amazing mix of cultures and cuisines we thought it would be a shame to overlook some more exotic elements – so you can try Persian, Indian, Mexican as well as pulled pork, prime steak, and the best local burgers and sausages, for those with more traditional tastes!

After you’ve done your foodie shopping, sit out enjoying tasty hot food, a refreshing drink (or two), with great live music in the stunning surroundings. The perfect recipe for a fun, foodie day out for the whole family.

Ticket Prices: Adults £5, U18’s £2. U5’s free. Family Ticket £12 ( 2 adults/up to 3 children)

Tickets are available online if you want to beat the queues! or on the door on the day.
