Ulverston Food Festival guide
Last updated at 09:01, Saturday, 24 May 2014
ULVERSTON is set to be transformed into a tasty town this weekend as part of a food festival.
For the past five years, Taste Cumbria has been bringing the finest food and drink the county has to offer to various towns and events across Cumbria.
Building on those successes, in 2014 the Taste Cumbria brand is stretching its wings and descending on Ulverston town centre for its brand new Food Festival.
Ulverston town centre is set host to over 45 producers, including artisan bakers and marshmallow makers. Producers from all four corners of the county will be gathering to display their wares and delight our visitors, so whether you’re after unusual taste combinations or indulging in your guilty pleasure, there should be something to tempt you!
There will be live demonstrations on both days:
- 11am Carvetii Coffee Roasters
- 12 noon Peter & Martin Gott, combining the best from Sillfield Farm Foods and Cartmel Cheese
- 1pm Gary McClure, Cookery Demonstration: Morecambe Bay Shrimps with Tagliatelle
- 2pm Ryan Blackburn, Old Stamp House Head Chef, Cookery Demonstration: Morecambe Bay Seabass
Expert producers will give you a rare insight into trade as well as a few insiders’ tricks, and as ever Taste Cumbria’s popular chef demonstrations will be running throughout the day, and are free of charge, compared by that bastion of Cumbrian fine food, Peter Gott of Sillfield Farm. Whether it’s the history of the Cumberland sausage or the best way to mature cheese, everyone will be able to learn something new in Ulverston’s Market Place.
Full of food and in need of a rest for your taste buds? Take a break and discover a range of other attractions and entertainment…all guaranteed to add a little bit of extra spice top the weekend’s proceedings.
There will be a range of free kids arts and crafts activities provided by Ford Park Community Group in the town centre, including Scarecrow making, salad bowl growing, sheep collage, marvellous menu's and much more.
Up-and-coming bands from all over the county will also be performing live on stage throughout the festival creating a fantastic ambience and helping to promote local talent of a different flavour.
Taste Cumbria isn’t just about everything edible of course…everything drinkable features heavily on the menu too. Taking this to heart, local pubs and breweries are teaming up to dispense a huge selection of the beers being specially brewed for the festival.
With nine separate venues taking part, between them boasting a collection of over 60 beers from more than 20 breweries hailing from across the county, the Ale Trail looks set to be a great way to take a break from the hustle of the busy streets.
Organised by the various pubs and the award winning Ulverston Brewery, this Ulverston’s first ever Ale Trail and is sure to be one to savour! To test the delicious waters of Cumbria’s thriving brewing industry, head on down to any (or all) of the following: Avanti Capitola; The Farmers Arms; The Devonshire Arms; The Kings Head; Stan Laurel Inn; The Mill; Ulverston Brewery; The Sun Hotel; and The Swan Inn.
Ale Trail venues will be serving collectible stamps alongside every purchase; collect all nine to be in for a chance to win a delicious Taste Cumbria Food & Drink Hamper.
