We’ve worked with Cathy on many events and keep returning for more. The events are well organised and we appreciate the concise and timely communication we get. Cathy and her team are great to work with and we cannot recommend them highly enough

David Burnley – Rhucello

We have been working with Food Festivals Ltd for the past two years.

I cannot speak highly enough of their events; which are very well thought out in terms of location and timing. The communication and planning are always meticulous. The team at each and every event work tirelessly to ensure both visitors and traders have a great experience.

Cathy herself has been a great support to us, always approachable and a true pleasure to work with.

Southend Carnival Events is the operational arm of Southend Carnival Association which has been raising funds for the community for over 100 years. 2017 is the Southend Alternative City of Culture and the 125th Anniversary of the Borough of Southend. We offered to support this by organising a food and drink festival and in June 16 sought a partner organisation to support us. From the very initial contact to the current time I have found Food Festivals Ltd to be open to new ways of working; not least to operate out of their usual patch and found they had innovative ideas and solid experience of the operational issues in events of this scale. We have quickly formed a close working partnership and have been able to resolve issues quickly and get the project off the ground in a short space of time . We hope this will be the start of a long and fruitful relationship.

Garry Lowen, Chair of Southend Carnival

We have been trading at Food Festivals Ltd events for the past 6 years.
We would highly recommend them due to them being very well organized, great at communication, and experienced event planners.
Cathy, herself is a professional, approachable, and friendly person who works extremely hard to run successful events.

We first met Cathy at Flavours Food festival in 2022 and straight away it was evident they knew what they were doing. From the beginning the communication and support has been amazing. We have to admit that it is one of the best companies we’ve worked with in the Events Industry. We then attended Holmfirth Food and Drink Festival, again the event was very organised throughout and the attention to detail was on point. Cathy has always been so friendly, supportive and professional in all of our experience of working together. I would highly recommend attending any of their events and we will be certainly be continuing this journey with them.

We have been in close contact with Food Festivals LTD for almost four years now, hosting a Food and Drink Festival which attracted over 50,000 visitors in its first year alone. We are an award-winning visitor attraction in our own right, but with the help of Cathy and her team Cannon Hall Farm has become a UK-wide household name.
We are thrilled to work alongside Food Festivals Ltd. Cathy’s experience, determination and drive was apparent in our first meeting, and to this day these qualities have not waned. The company delivers all that we could have ever asked for from an events organisation: innovative ideas; the obtainment of quality exhibitors (from caterers to craft, artisan and product); extensive marketing, from leafleting to Facebook advertisements, and formidable organisation and management of each event.
What’s more, Cathy has a wonderful Festival team, who help in the set-up, running and pack-down of the event. Not only is the task fulfilled to an impeccably high standard, but the team are a pleasure to work with. They always have smiles on their faces, and no job is ever too much bother.
Food Festivals LTD is lucky to have Cathy as Company Director. She is down-to-earth, exceptionally communicative and passionate about delivering stand-out events. The public are always impressed by the products of her labour, and so are we. We could not think of a more meticulous and experienced events organisation, and it is a joy to work with Cathy and her team each year. Long may it continue.

Cannon Hall Farm Food Fest

I met Cathy in early 2016 as we embarked on our first ever food festival. Food Festivals Ltd was recommended to me by a contact within the events industry and I was assured that Cathy could help me deliver a high quality event
Cathy and I met to discuss what Food Festivals Ltd  could offer and she was very clear on pricing and what she could do. Cathy was very open and provided me with lots of valuable advice and support; she was always available to speak with and offered ongoing support in the months leading up to the event. I was given weekly updates on bookings and Cathy suggested new opportunities that I hadn’t considered.

Once Cathy was on board, the mammoth planning process was eased as I knew the stall holders had a contact and she was managing the booking process. On the day of the event Cathy managed getting all of the exhibitors on site and set up, without that support I don’t think we could have coped on the day.

The event was a great success and we had lots of positive feedback from visitors and producers. Everyone seemed really happy with how the event was planned and delivered on the day; this was largely due to how well my company and Food Festivals Ltd worked together to deliver a high quality event.

I have learned an enormous amount from Cathy and found her to be professional, supportive and approachable
I would definitely work with Food Festival Ltd again and we are already planning our next event. Experience has taught me that festivals take a lot more work than anticipated, but working with Food Festivals Ltd made the process so much easier and allowed us to deliver what, at times, felt like an impossible task!
