This year marks the 10th anniversary of the floods and Boscastle Festival has planned its most spectacular year yet. Held over the weekend of 4/5 October, there will be demonstrations from over a dozen of Cornwall’s top chefs, including Nathan Outlaw, Paul Ainsworth and the Cornish Chefs Club (en masse). Russell Brown from Dorset brings the Michelin Star count to five. 2014 promises to deliver foodie heaven.
Boscastle Festival is equally immensely proud to host stalls from top Cornish food, art and crafters within the two marquees. The Green Scene hosts interactive learning including archery, apple pressing and metalworking, and a variety of other activities will take place around the village. There truly will be something for everyone to discover over the weekend, all of which are easily accessible by the free bus shuttle service that will be in operation.
“Boscastle Festival is not only a celebration of Cornwall’s best food producers and most talented chefs, but is a showcase for unique Cornish arts and crafts, offers activities for all the family, and has possibly the most picturesque setting for any festival in the county.”
“Local Cornish producers in abundance in a stunning location and with a lovely vibe. Good line up of chef demos – intimate, informative & fun. Loved it.”
The festival launches on Thursday 2 October with an opening night party, and closes on the Sunday afternoon with a concert from the Plymouth Military Wives Choir. For full details of all events download the festival programme.
