Taste Cumbria Events

Taste Ulverston

Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May 2017

The Saturday and Sunday of the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May is when Taste Cumbria comes to Ulverston, Cumbria’s ‘festival town’.

Every year we host a big producers’ market, loads of free expert demonstrations, a hot food court, and plenty to keep even the littlest foodies happy. With the generous support of Ulverston Town Council, plus brilliant partners like the team from Ford Park and the local businesses, this is a great place to take the family.

New for 2017 was an exclusive pop-up restaurant, courtesy of Michelin-starred chef Kevin Tickle from The Forest Side at Grasmere. He and his team transformed the Hoad, Ulverston’s famous monument, for an intimate dinner for invited guests. Next year, there are plans to launch an Ulverston pop-up on a much bigger scale – though the venue is still under wraps.

Saturday 10am – 5pm

Taste Tynedale is Taste Cumbria’s ‘little sister’ festival and takes place in the lovely town of Hexham. After two years, it’s really getting established as one of the North East’s most exciting food and drink events,
attracting thousands of visitors to the producers’ market, beer and wine festival, chef demonstrations, live music, picnic area and children’s activities.

With our partners, Hexham Town Council and the Hexham Courant, we want to position Northumbria as another fabulous food tourism destination, showcasing its food heroes and food culture, and bringing great Northumbrian produce to an even bigger audience. The event is held in association with the Hexham Courant and is sponsored by Hexham Town Council.
