Tewkesbury Food & Drink Festival 2010 celebrity chef announced as James Martin
The organisers of the annual Tewkesbury Food & Drink Festival are very proud to be able to announce that James Martin will be returning again for the 2010 festival. The festival is looking to build on the success of the 2009 event where visitors had a great day out.
Councillor Phil Taylor, Lead Member for Economic Development and Promotion at Tewkesbury Borough Council said "Tewkesbury Borough is proud to announce that the very successful Food Festival will be held again in 2010. It's a great showcase for our many local businesses and we're hoping to attract more than the 12,000 visitors who enjoyed last year's event."
Anna Sanders from the festival team at Tewkesbury Borough Council said “We are delighted to be welcoming James Martin back again for 2010. He was extremely popular in 2009 and so we are very pleased he has agreed to return to our wonderful town! We will be releasing the full programme of events in January but some highlights will include James Martin demonstrations on Sunday 2nd May, a full programme of local chef demonstrations, lots of family fun activities, the return of the very successful craft tent, and, new for 2010, Floral Fiesta with Dutch Master Florist Hans Haverkamp.”
