After four great days, Eat & Drink Festival Manchester closed its doors for the first time. Don’t worry though – we’ll be back.

Thousands of people visited the show at EventCity and hopefully came away with memories to last a lifetime, new ideas and maybe even a new favourite food.

Some learnt new skills and got tips on mastering a new dish. Others discovered new wines and drinks or took home fantastic produce from one a number of unique artisan producers.

There were packed houses as local chefs, celebrated drinks experts and some of food’s biggest took to the stage in The Foodie Lab while The Great Eat became street food heaven.

As summer took hold of Manchester, our unique Pimms Teapot and Captain Morgan's Rum Ship became popular destinations to wash down an indulgent afternoon with something refreshing.

Manchester opened its arms to 50 exhibitors, ranging from well-known brands to family run start-ups, to help make the Northern debut of Eat & Drink Festival a roaring success.

But that’s just the beginning.

Our next stop will be Eat & Drink Festival Christmas, live at EventCity Manchester from 9 - 12 November followed by Eat & Drink Festival Christmas at Olympia London from 22 - 26 November.

We’ll see you there and when we return to Manchester in 2018!
