Cheese & wine, gin and Kent green hop beer – there’s a mouth­wa­ter­ing se­lec­tion on of­fer at this week­end’s Broad­stairs Food Fes­ti­val. Run­ning from Fri­day, Septem­ber 29, at 10am to Sun­day, Septem­ber 30, at 5pm, events are held at var­i­ous lo­ca­tions around the town. There will be more than 100 stalls selling re­gional pro­duce, a re­fresh­ment mar­quee, chef’s theatre where you can watch chefs cre­ate culi­nary mas­ter­pieces, a vin­tage tea par­lour and chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties.

High­lights in­clude a cheese & wine master­class, hosted by Bid­den­den Vineyard with Can­ter­bury Cheese­mak­ers and King­cott Dairy on Fri­day, with tickets £20.

There’s also wine tast­ing and craft beer and food pair­ing ses­sions, as well as a tour of the award­win­ning Gadds Brew­ery in Hor­net Close, when for £12.50 vis­i­tors can see how the beer is made, and get to sniff and taste the hops – as well as taste the fresh, lo­cal ale it­self.
