A FEAST will celebrate all things delicious from Rhuddlan and the Welsh Marches this spring.

The Gwledd Rhuddlan Food, Drink and Craft Festival returns to the Community Centre on Parliament Street on Saturday, May 18 from 10am.

Following up from last year’s event, which coincided with the Royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, more than half of the event’s 50 exhibitors will represent Denbighshire food, drink and craft producers.

Now in its fifth year, the festival is voluntarily by Denbighshire events organisers Bespoke Fitness and Events and was instigated by town and county councillor Arwel Roberts to showcase a range of food a crafts from the town’s businesses.

Ffion White, director of Bespoke, said: “This is our third year running the event and it has just got bigger and better every year, with a strong commitment team we all work very hard and well together.

“It gets bigger and better every year thanks to the great team of volunteers.”

“We showcase creative across the Welsh Marches alongside a handful of invited traders who have something that little bit different to bring to the Festival from further afield.”

In addition to plenty of food and drink, there will also be entertainment throughout the day, with school choirs, singers and musicians from the area, including acoustic dance headlines The Hedge Gods.

There will be activities available for children including a variety of activities including magicians and a banner competition for Rhuddlan’s school pupils.

Mrs White added: “Each year you can see new and exiting businesses joining us at the festival as well as being able to shop with favourite, familiar producers.

“Without our fantastic exhibitors and vendors our festival just wouldn’t happen.”

“We are lucky to have a whole array of producers who join us from cheese mongers, bakers, brewers, chocolatiers, gin makers, ice cream just to name a few.”
