As well as being the first year that the festival is running for three days, this year’s festival will also be more environmentally friendly than ever, there will be no single use plastics sold anywhere within the festival and there will only be compostable or reusable plates, cutlery and straws as well as reusable cups. You can find out more about this here.
The event takes over the whole of Christchurch with a full road closure for the three days along the high street and down to the quay. The organisers really use this event to celebrate passion-driven, sustainable and ethically minded producers who bring the very best food and drink in the region and work to support small producers and independent food businesses, making it a great event for DF&D members to attend.
