Celebrating Food and Drink Festivals in the City of
Brighton and Hove.
As we are a team of foodies at heart, we thought that it would only be fair if we told you about other food related festivals and events in our wonderful city. So you can get to know who does what and learn more about the restaurants and food in Brighton, Hove and wider Sussex.
The Brighton and Hove Food Festival event is hosted in different parts of the city from Hove Lawns, New Road, Jubilee square, Brighton Marina; it is an occasion when you can really spoil yourself through an amazing journey of food and the entertainment that goes with it. Please prepare in advance and wear loose clothing so you have room to grow!
Brighton and Hove are leading the way as a food and restaurant destination and the Brighton and Hove Food Festival is the biggest event of its kind in the South east of England. Each year this event continues to gather momentum, the organisers have a superb grasp as to what makes the city tick and so the Brighton Food Festival team just keep getting better and better. In 2011 Brighton attracted over 160,000 visitors to various locations around Brighton and Hove as the Brighton and Hove Food Festival enjoyed its most successful year to date.
With the French Markets, The Chilli Festival, the Farmers Market, the Champagne and Oyster Festival, the Sussex Beer Festival and the Spring Harvest – Brighton becomes a food Mecca with people strolling around each corner of Brighton, just enjoying great food and hopefully soaking up the sun.
The Brighton & Hove Food and Drink Festival is a celebration of the best food and drink in the city and wider Sussex, with producers, restaurants, pubs, bars, retailers, markets & great events firmly at its heart. Here is a link to the Brighton Food Festival organisers website which gives you further information, plus if you wanted to get involved in the event as a stall holder to represent your business then please get in touch with them directly.
Nick Mosley from Brighton Visitor is heading the Brighton Food Festival campaign for 2012, spreading the word about Brighton and Hove as a food destination city, therefore attracting thousands of people for the benefit of the city. If you want to find about food and drink in Brighton and Hove, then this is the event to attend. The Brighton Food and Drink Festival is also a great occasion to showcase your restaurant or food shop off at; so get involved and help celebrate this occasion with anyone and everyone who knows and wants to know about food. The event also brings in close to £4 million for the local economy, well done to Nick and his team! This is considering the festival is a not for profit event, with no public sector funding.
“As comprehensive a festival as you will find in the UK this summer, this month-long homage to Brighton, Hove and the wider Sussex food scene takes in pretty much every taste-related activity you could think of… For foodies who like to keep it local, the Big Sussex Market, which attracted over 40,000 people last year, is a shopping experience without parallel. Best start saving.” – The Guardian ‘Word of Mouth’, May 2011*
