Padstow Christmas Festival has grown to become one of the UK’s biggest free food festivals. It stars award-winning chefs and more than 110 artisans and producers. The festival has been voted by Lonely Planet in the top ten “delightfully different Christmas markets in Europe.”
The festival is full of festive gift ideas and irresistible local food and drink. On top of this, it includes two cookery demonstration theatres set around Padstow harbour. If you need inspiration for Christmas celebrations head to the Festival Kitchen. Top chefs, local producers and artisans will be there to stir up your imagination from table decorations to delicious cocktails and recipe ideas. The Sharp’s Brewery Chef’s Demo Theatre will be hosting big name chefs who will be preparing fresh food in front of audiences. Our very own Head Chef, Jamie Porter, will be there on Thursday 4th of December at 2pm.
