Open between 10am and 4pm, the Festival will feature a wide range of stalls (over 60 in fact!) offering beautiful local produce from the some of the best producers of food and drink the East Riding of Yorkshire has to offer. The host of artisan products available to buy extends from beers and stronger tipples, through delicacies and savouries such as indulgent cheeses to speciality chocolate. 

Once again, the Festival will be take place inside Beverley Minster, the architectural masterpiece we are so fortunate to have on our doorstep; in addition there will be a selection of medieval-style performances to set the atmosphere, including sets by the Beverley Ukulele Band, and the All for One Choir. 

Both the Mayor of Beverley Cllr Duncan Jack and Town Clerk, Helen Watson were anticipating the upcoming event. Cllr Duncan Jack said: “This will be a great festive food festival in the Minster. Again, we are delighted to be working in partnership with Beverley Minster to hold this prestigious local food event, which each year has gone from strength to strength. It helps to showcase the large variety and high quality of local food the area has to offer, whilst also showing the Minster in all its glory. The event brings in many residents and visitors to enjoy the festival day and see this magnificent building for themselves. It’s also an important event which helps to raise funds for the future of the Minster.”
