The much loved Powderham Food Festival is returning and will be opening its gates to the public on the 6th and 7th of October.  WBW Solicitors are proud to say that we will once again be sponsoring the yearly event which takes place on the historic grounds of Powderham Castle.

This year will see over 170 food, arts and crafts exhibitors showing off their locally produced products at this popular event, making it one of the biggest food and drink festivals in the South West. There will be demonstrations from the region’s leading chefs, including those from the Cornish Development Chef, TV personality and author James Strawbridge. BBC Devon’s radio broadcaster, Judie Spiers, will be hosting the chefs’ theatre for the foodie weekend and will be introducing Devon’s award winning chefs.

In addition to the food and drink exhibitors, there is a great line up of local musicians that will be playing at the festival. The music will start at 10am on both the Saturday and Sunday so make sure you get there early. It also marks the return of The Great Devon Chilli Challenge, organised by the Clifton Chilli Club, which pushes people to their limits as they go head to head against each other for a chance of winning a case of Hunters ‘Fire King’ ale. For the kids, there will be cookery lessons held by the Fun Kitchen along with children’s entertainment provided by Comedian Dan the Hat.

Our Food and Drink Team at WBW Solicitors love going to local events such as these as it gives them a chance to meet their clients and see the expertise our region has to offer in the food and drink industry. We are very lucky in the South West to have both exceptional local produce and excellent producers, suppliers and retailers to bring it to market. However, the complexities of running a food-related business can be a little overwhelming. Our group of specialist lawyers within the Food and Drink Team are always on hand to provide expert legal advice and help you and your business in a number of ways.
