Wells Food Festival with Charlie Bigham’s is a unique food festival, giving artisan producers from the South of England the opportunity to reach a wider audience, via its virtual shopping experience. The festival is the country’s largest online food market and festival and they are on the look out for Dorset businesses to join them and showcase their wares to foodies nationwide.
The festival programme includes live streamed masterclasses, cook alongs and talks by Charlie Bigham and his team of master chefs, hosted by MasterChef judge William Sitwell. Festivalgoers can also sign up to a range of free workshops and other activities all from the comfort of their own home.
Wells Food Festival with Charlie Bigham’s is a collaboration between premium food brand, Charlie Bigham’s and one of the UK’s most respected small food festivals. The partnership aims to support artisan food businesses and help them thrive after a challenging year of sales.
Charlie Bigham said: “2020 has been a difficult year for small food and drink businesses, who also face additional challenges due to many food festivals being cancelled – their primary opportunity to generate sales. Our aim is to help this artisan community by bringing the Wells Food Festival to a virtual national audience, giving foodies across the country the chance to support and buy direct from Dorset’s finest makers.”
Jon Abbot, Festival Director at Wells Food Festival, said: “Our top priority has always been to support artisan producers and put them at the heart of the festival. This year it seems more important than ever. Thanks to the support of Charlie Bigham’s, we firmly believe 2020 will be remembered as the year Wells Food Festival went above and beyond to champion amazing food from across the South of England.”
