Delicious Doncaster Food and Drink Festival 2018

Something for Every Taste!


A four day feast of fantastic food, delightful drinks, celebrity chefs, dynamic cooking demonstrations, exciting entertainment and tempting treats!

Spanning across four days of the May Bank Holiday weekend, from Friday 4th to Monday 7th May, the festival will feature entertainment, activities, hot street food and some exciting names from the culinary world.

This year, one of the UK’s favourite cookery duos The Hairy Bikers (Si and Dave) will be the star attractions of the festival. They will be making an appearance on Saturday 5th May in the demonstration kitchen based in Market Square, to show how to cook some of their favourite recipes using ingredients bought at Doncaster Market. The popular TV chefs will also spend part of the day taking in a walking tour of the market and will be on hand for meet and greets with their many fans.

Most recently seen on our television screens earlier this year with ‘The Hairy Bikers’ Mediterranean Adventure’, the much-loved pair have presented several hit TV programmes over the years and have also written twenty books to date, including a number of best-sellers.

Following the success of last year’s appearance, Jean-Christophe Novelli will also be returning to ‘Delicious Doncaster Food and Drink Festival’ on Sunday 6th May. The Michelin Award winning TV chef will once again demonstrate how to prepare some more of his mouth-watering dishes using locally sourced produce.

There’ll be plenty more to look forward to right across the Delicious Doncaster weekend so keep an eye out for further announcements!
