A celebration of food, music & art

We have been watching developments with the Coronavirus pandemic very carefully since news first broke. We hoped against hope that October was far enough into the year for The Forest Showcase Food Festival to be able to go ahead.

Unfortunately, following a site meeting with various bodies, we are unable to say with confidence that we can deliver a socially distance ‘safe’ event on 4th October along our traditional lines; so we have taken the sad decision to postpone the event until Spring/Summer 2021.  (Date tbc )

We hope that we will be able to welcome you all to celebrate the amazing abundance of food and drink producers in this very special area next Spring. We wish all our producers and visitors well at this very uncertain time and will do our best to support the local food industry when and where we can.

The Forest Showcase Food Festival will be back in the Speech House Hotel grounds in Spring 2021 and 3rd October 2021.

We showcase creative producers from The Forest of Dean and surrounding areas alongside invited traders who have something that ‘little bit different’ to bring to the Festival.

We are lucky to have a whole array of producers who join us from cheese mongers, bakers, brewers and baristas! You can also find chocolatiers, butchers, winemakers and those that create delicious ice cream.
Over 100 top local and artisan producers, stunning hot food, real ale, gin and wine, interesting talks, parent & child cookery lessons and lots of children’s activities, top chef demos, excellent live music, arts & crafts, all together it makes a lovely foodie family day out.
