Gloucestershire food fans are in for a treat this summer as the super popular Cheltenham Food and Drink Festival returns to Montpellier Gardens for its 15th year running. 

Taking place from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 June 2023, families and friends can enjoy a whole weekend of all things food and drink – from free talks and tastings to browsing the produce tents and watching the street entertainers, there's something for all ages and taste buds.

With celebrity chefs like Lisa Faulkner and Rosemary Shrager leading the live cooking demos, foodies can look forward to cheese masterclasses with expert Ned Palmer, plus wine tasting and masterclasses with Yealands Winery.

There's also live music from bands The Whisky Priests and Splat The Rat, among many other exciting performers.

Brand-new for 2023, the festival's charity of the year, Cheltenham Animal Shelter, will be hosting doggy events all weekend – with a dog show on the Sunday for the grand finale. Bring your pooch down for the chance to be named Best in Show and win treats for your furry friend!
