Willow Burn Food Festival

Young and old alike should pencil in their diaries Saturday 20th May – as the arrival of Consett’s very first food festival – with a difference at Consett Rugby Club, DH8 6LU.


Not only bringing you a massive selection of local, national and international cuisines, Willow Burn Hospice’s premier Food Festival is the most delicious way to support a local charity!!

Supporting adults from across Derwentside with life-limiting conditions, Willow Burn is always looking to broaden their scope of fantastic family-friendly events – and this one happens to be delicious too! Aiming to raise £6,000 from the day, we are inviting you to join us for a day of fun and food.

Willow Burn is proud to announce live entertainment from the lovely Amy Ridley, Paige Temperley and Chris Shorten on our ‘Elddis Stage’ as well as competitions, fairground rides and featuring Jack Drum Arts too.

We also have guest appearances from our very own Mrs Brown Brian Lewins and Tommy Bungle who will be entertaining kids all day

The Festival boasts dozens of traders with a vast range of sweet and savoury (and boozy!) treats for everyone on offer; this is guaranteed to be the perfect day out for the whole family. Sample, taste and buy from more than 40 stalls and vans; this Festival is covering everyone’s palette and even caters for Vegans, vegetarians, and coeliacs too.

So if you are looking to broaden your culinary horizons, indulge in something really naughty or stock up on speciality items, then Willow Burn Hospice’s Food Festival is an absolute must to attend.

Tickets are £3 per ticket (under 12’s free) and each ticket guarantees entry into the grand prize draw for a spectacular culinary hamper prize with fabulous treats to eat and enjoy.
