Woking Food & Drink Festival 2019



Jubilee Square, WOKING, Surrey, GU21 6GA
Woking Food & Drink Festival 2019


Surrey’s biggest free-to-attend event, Woking Food and Drink Festival, is set to deliver another magnificent mezze of culinary delights from Friday 30 August to Sunday 1 September 2019 inclusive.

In its seventh consecutive year, the multi award-winning, three-day festival promises to serve up a mouth-watering menu of foodie and family activities.

Taking centre stage in Jubilee Square, the purpose-built Woking Shopping Demo Theatre, supported by international culinary innovator Magimix, will be home to 20 live cookery demonstrations, featuring talented and highly regarded celebrity and local chefs.

The festival is delighted to welcome back, Sabrina Ghayour – the ‘golden girl of Persian cookery’ (The Observer). Sabrina’s exotic recipes are packed full of flavour, yet surprisingly unfussy to recreate.

Other famous faces include Surrey based Chris Bavin, co-presenter on BBC’s Eat Well For Less and Martha Collinson, Great British Bake Off quarter finalist, Waitrose food columnist and cookbook author.

Honouring Surrey’s cream of the crop, the festival will showcase some of the region’s finest restaurants and chefs, including Michelin masters Steve Drake, chef patron of Sorrel in Dorking and Tony Parkin, head chef for the Tudor Room at Great Fosters in Egham. See the full demo chef line-up on the festival’s website.

Browse, graze and stock up

Forage amongst over 80 food and drink traders, which will be fully stocked with artisan products, freshly prepared dishes and tipples hailing from the locality, the UK and across the world.

Tickle your taste-buds with something new

Add some extra flavour to your visit by booking one of the themed wine masterclasses and tastings* or, new for this year’s event, pop up dining experiences* hosted at a number of independent venues around the town.

Also save space for the free bite-size talks, hosted in the Surrey Life Entertainment Tent. Compere Hersha Patel will be chatting with a panel of local producers and experts about their tricks of the trade and specialist knowledge on a range of subjects, including English wine, brewing, gin distilling, beekeeping, butchery, spices, veganism and more!

Entertainment for all the family

Once again, there’s a smorgasbord of family entertainment on the menu. Whether it’s getting sticky fingers at the children’s cup cake decorating workshops*, creating culinary inspired masterpieces at the arts and crafts workshops, watching the humorous street entertainers, listening to the live music, you’re sure to be entertained!

For those that like it hot, don’t miss the live HotPods chilli eating competition set to take place in the demo theatre on Saturday 31 August.
