Full steam ahead for 2021 Stone Food & Drink Festival!

Full steam ahead for 2021 Stone Food & Drink Festival!

The team behind Stone’s annual gastronomic gathering has announced that the event will go ahead as planned on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd October 2021.

With the 2020 event cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, organisers went ‘virtual’; publishing a series of online cookery masterclasses featuring local chefs, but this year are keen to get the event back in its original ‘live’ format on Westbridge Park.

Chairman Richard Stevens, who heads up the CIC not-for-profit that runs the event, says:

“With the government announcing its roadmap out of lockdown earlier this month, we’ve had a number of serious discussions and are delighted to announce that the festival will be back on Westbridge Park later this year, should everything go to plan.

“This year, more than ever, our traders and the hospitality industry in general need our support, so we are determined to give them a fantastic platform to connect with food and drink loving members of the public. We’ve got some exciting changes planned to the format but visitors will still enjoy plenty of old favourites – like the gourmet shopping marquees, demonstration kitchen, talks & tastings tent and great live music, plus lots of fun for younger visitors too.”

Joule’s Brewery remains lead sponsor for the 2021 event, with anticipation building ahead of the launch of its new Crown Wharf complex in town, with Lexus Stoke once again on board to sponsor the Demonstration Kitchen. A number of other sponsorship opportunities are available for businesses keen to support the event.

The 2021 Stone Food & Drink Festival will take place on Friday 1st, Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd October 2021.

For details head to  stonefooddrink.org.uk and sign up for e-newsletter updates. You can also follow the event on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Hairy Biker Dave Myers. 

We were honoured to host Dave and Si at the Stone Food & Drink Festival back in 2010 when they headlined the Demonstration Kitchen. What a lovely, friendly and humble gent he was. 

Our heartfelt condolences to Si, Dave’s friends and family.
