On 14th and 15th October 2017 you are invited to join us for the second Flavours Food Festival, set in the historic conservation village of Elsecar.

The village, attracting over 440,000 visitors a year, is rich in history and character. Today it is home to a series of independent craftsmen and retailers as well as a heritage railway. The site is located a mere 2 miles from junction 36 of the M1 and is well signposted

This spectacular two day event will see our unique historical site transformed into a bustling food and drink and craft market, offering a wide variety of tasty treats and creative displays.

Alongside stalls and street food, we will also be welcoming a very special guest.  Seating over 250 people in the specially constructed grand arena, you will have the opportunity to see celebrity chef Nadiya Hussain. She will be demonstrating a selection of personal recipes, which you can recreate at home.  Other local chefs will also be demonstrating throughout the weekend.

Inside the Ironworks, our versatile events space, approximately 60 local and national food producers will set out their wares.  Here, you can browse, sample and even begin your Christmas shopping.  Adjacent to this space will be a craft area of approximately 60 exhibitors.

Outside in the Old Works Yard there will be a large selection of tempting street food. This area will be open until 9pm on Saturday so visitors can enjoy live music, craft ale, prosecco, cocktails and street food.  You will also have the opportunity to explore the Earl Fitzwilliam's Workshops (a series of independent shops, antiques centre, play area and quaint cafes). Feel free to look and discover exclusive and unexpected treasures.
