Thousands Support First Warwick Food Festival Since COVID

Thousands Support First Warwick Food Festival Since COVID

Thousands of visitors flocked to Warwick Food Festival yesterday, Sunday 1st August. The annual festival was cancelled last year due to the Coronavirus Pandemic but has successfully returned.

60 Food & Drink traders filled Market Place & Old Square, along with a full line-up of entertainment on stage.

Jamie Walker of CJ's Events Warwickshire said: 'We can't thank the public enough for their support. We're pleased yesterday's festival was a huge success, it was terrific seeing so many people out & about enjoying themselves. It was great to be back delivering a fantastic food festival for our district.

'All of our team and traders took Lateral Flow Tests on-site before setting up, which was supported by Rapid Response Medical Services, and everyone tested negative. Warwickshire Country Council also did on-site testing and handed out home test kits which had an excellent uptake with festival visitors.

'Our whole team have worked hard to ensure yesterday's event could go ahead following the latest Government guidelines and with COVID measures in place. I want to pass our thanks to our team, traders, visitors and course Warwick District Council & other agencies behind the scenes.'

Warwick Winter Food Market will be taking place on Sunday 28th November 2021, with the next Warwick Summer Food Festival taking place on Sunday 1st May 2022.
