Holkham’s Virtual Food Festival

June 14, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

We are so excited to host Norfolk’s first ever Virtual Food Festival! The last few weeks have highlighted just how important supporting local food and drink suppliers is to our local communities. From butchers to bakers to greengrocers and farm shops, our local suppliers have been wonderful and really rallied round to ensure we’ve still been able to enjoy their delicious offerings.

If you’ve been one of the many budding chefs who have been expanding their culinary skills during lockdown, this celebration of Norfolk’s amazing food and drink offering is definitely for you. The day will see a host of talented, local and national chefs take to the stage (socially distancing of course!) and showcase how to make the most of our abundant local produce.

There will also be a fantastic competition; interviews with Norfolk’s farmers, producers and restaurateurs; and a rare peek at what goes on behind the scenes with some candid footage.
