Have you ever been to Foodies Festival? If not you’re missing out!
Foodies Festival is one of the UK’s most successful food festivals, but did you know it all started out in Edinburgh? This year Foodies Festival celebrates its 10th year in Edinburgh, and we’re delighted to be giving away TWO pairs of tickets to help them celebrate.
Last year 34,000 people went to Foodies, and this year the event will be running the 7-9th August in the sunny delights of Inverleith Park. Owing to its on-going success, this year the festival site will be 50% bigger than in previous years, meaning even more food and drinks producers, tents and theatres. Highlights for us last year involved drinking rum from a coconut (seriously, it was delicious and very, very boozy), sharing a potato spiral with Stephen K Amos (again, seriously), watching Mark Greenaway and Adam Handling, and eating multiple times our own weight in absolutely delicious food. Could there be a better way of getting into the festival spirit?
If you want to be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets for a day of your choosing, simply enter our competition:
