The best way to enjoy the whole festival experience is with a weekend wristband. You get access to an expanded Producers’ Market, showcasing delicious and innovative Great British food, a whole host of free events, including talks and debates, chef demonstrations, book signings and the Saturday night market.

We’re keen to get kids involved with lots of family activities on offer, including cookery classes, entertainment at the castle and an edible education space. Don’t forget that children can visit the festival for free!

Receive a discount by purchasing your festival wristband in advance for £14. Children (under 16) can visit the festival for free, but still also need their own wristband. Please note that child wristbands do not include entry to the Party at the Castle or events that require additional tickets. Weekend wristbands can also be purchased on the day for £18 from the main box office.

Local residents with an NP7 postcode qualify for a further 10% discount, please use the code LOCAL when purchasing your wristband.

Tickets for specific events such as masterclasses, chef demos, parties at the castle and pop-up feasts will need to be purchased separately. Watch out for the full programme release at the beginning of June. To see the full list of events and purchase tickets, click here.
