Sheffield Food Festival is under new management!
Hugely popular Sheffield Food Festival will return for a seventh year in May, under new management. The ever-successful annual event, which takes place across the city centre on the May bank holiday weekend, began as a collaboration between Sheffield Hallam University’s Business School and Sheffield City Council’s major events team.
The organisation Events Collective, which has been an integral part of the Sheffield Food Festival team for the last five years, will now be taking on the co-ordination of the whole event.
Bob Worm from Events Collective said: “I am over the moon that our role with Sheffield Food Festival is growing. We love delivering this event and there is no doubt it is one of the highlights of our calendar. I am looking forward to helping the festival grow from strength to strength.”
Councillor Mary Lea, cabinet member for culture, sport and leisure at Sheffield City Council, said: “I am delighted to see this ever-popular celebration of Sheffield’s fine food and drink culture return for a seventh year, and would like to welcome Events Collective to their new role.”
Recent years have seen the weekend event take root in the Peace Gardens and slowly grow out into its surrounding areas, with almost 30,000 people attending over three days last year. People were drawn from all over Sheffield and further afield to try out tasty street food, shop at the artisan food and drink market, watch cookery demonstrations and enjoy a range of real ales from a beer tent in the heart of the gardens.
Sheffield Food Festival is on the 27th – 29th of May 2017. For more information on what’s on or how to get involved, contact us here.
