The Cheltenham Food and Drink festival was held between July 15th and July 17th in 2017. It’s so much more than a place to get interesting food and drinks. In 2017, there were food talks and entertainment. The talks are basically food experts talking about food, and seats are given out on a first come, first served basis. Wine tastings were also a highlight, with many different wines being available for tasting to the public. There are children friendly exhibits and entertainment. These include face painting and a Punch and Judy show. For adults, there are bands and tree climbing, depending on the day you go.
A variety of local shops provided the speakers for the food talks, and there was a lot of hullabaloo at the various talks.
