Cookery Theatre

Our Cookery Theatre plays host to a fantastic line-up of celebrity chefs and special guests. With delicious live demonstrations throughout the day, make sure you don't miss your favourite. To make it even more palatable, our demo sessions are offered at no additional cost!


With such great names, seats fill up fast so make sure you get there early to get the perfect view. Our special guests will be cooking and chatting for around 35 to 45 minutes in each session, showcasing their specialties and talking about what makes their taste buds tingle.


Make sure you pop by for some tips, ideas and inspiration to get cooking…


Please note line up subject to change.

You may have seen in some of our adverts and on our leaflets that the lovely John Torode was going to be joining us at this year’s Festival of Food and Drink. Sadly, before we had chance to  announce him, filming commitments meant he had to pull out. By this time, adverts and leaflets had been printed so we are sorry for any disappointment. All information is correct at the time of print and as always, our guest line-up is subject to change. We still have our ‘fantastic five’ chefs to entertain you over the weekend. Hope to see you there!
