The Beverley Food Festival, and the Christmas Festival of Food & Drink, each celebrate local food, its producers and growers. Both events have grown in popularity, both with residents and tourists, year-on-year.

“These seasonal events reflect the Town Council’s commitment to supporting local businesses, and the local economy, and help to attract visitors from right across the country to come and enjoy the very best of the region’s local food and drink, in our beautiful medieval market town of Beverley.”

The two seasonal events were supported by Beverley Town Council’s Big Lottery funded Local Food project called ‘From Field to Table’, which aims to help make locally grown food accessible and affordable for everyone.
