After the first Wrexham Feast food festival was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, the event organisers say they plan to take things back to basics for the town’s new-look annual food festival this September.
The Leader reports that Sam Harris and Joss Prince, the organisers of Wrexham Feast, have said that cooking on a budget and using local ingredients prepared by local chefs will be the foundation for when the food festival comes to Llwyn Isaf on 25 and 26 September.
Sam and Joss, whose social enterprise Fair Event Management is based at Wrexham Enterprise Hub, were forced to cancel last year’s festival, but are looking forward to bringing a mixture of live food demos and food and drink stalls, a ‘pub garden’ area, and live music until 9 PM to the town.
Sam said: “We’re turning the food festival on its head and we aim to create a foodie frenzy in the centre of Wrexham.
“We aim to move away from the celebrity chef kind of event and to work with a number of local chefs and local ingredients. We want to support small businesses and also to give people the confidence to cook healthy and wholesome meals using basic ingredients rather than fancy food.”
Neither of the event organisers are new to events, having both worked in the events industry for many years, as well as organising a popular online market in the run-up to Christmas 2020, which featured around 150 independent traders.
Their future plans also involve producing several cooking demo videos featuring local chefs for their website.
Local traders looking to get involved in Wrexham Feast should contact Sam and Joss at email@example.com, and for more information of the festival, visit their website, which goes live in August - wrexhamfeast.com
