Blenheim Palace to host sixth annual food festival

Blenheim Palace is set to host what is perhaps the most glamorous annual food festival of the summer. Taking place during the second May Bank Holiday (25 to 27 May), this gastronomic weekend event will see demonstrations from both local and world-renowned chefs, as well as 160 food and drink stalls. Set in 2000 acres of beautiful parkland and formal gardens, it’s the perfect opportunity to pitch up with a picnic of food and drink from the festival. And moving with the times, the annual food festival will also include a special area designated for vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free and organic diets, with artisan bakers, craft brewers and international cuisine also on the menu.
