The latest Eat Cambridge went down well
Eat Cambridge served up a fortnight filled with tasty festivities from 19 May to 2 June, showcasing just how vibrant the local foodie scene has become. From the huge fair at The Guildhall, packed with great traders and thousands of happy punters, to the many inventive fringe events which took place around the city in the weeks that followed, the event offered a delicious celebration of the variety and depth of great food and drink on offer in our area.
“It was fantastic to be back after skipping a year in 2017 and it was clear that many, many people had missed Eat Cambridge!” Heidi White, festival director, told Cambridge Edition. “We had a superb selection of stallholders at the Main Event, all of which were very well received by customers who spent a happy hour or so sampling food and speaking to the producers before taking home plenty of local goodies. The programme of talks was also very popular, with the likes of Rosie Sykes, Rachel Roddy, Dr Sue Bailey and Alex Rushmer speaking about very current and insightful topics.
“I loved putting together the fringe events schedule this year, with so many exciting events and one-off pop-ups which celebrated our local food scene perfectly. I couldn’t have been happier with how it all went and the two weeks passed in a blur of food and drink festivities! Huge thanks to Cambridge Edition for helping us to promote the festival, and thank you to everyone who attended the events and got stuck in enjoying the food and drink we provided. See you all again next May.”
