The countdown to September’s festival started in earnest this week when key sponsors joined festival directors and Nantwich Mayor, Cllr Penny Butterill, for a formal photograph in the town centre.
Sponsorship comes from Mornflake, The County Group, Cheerbrook, Hall Smith Whittingham, AGA, Bentley Motors, Engenie and Nantwich Town Council among others.
This year, the festival is expected to attract up to 50,000 visitors across the three-day food, drink and entertainment spectacular.
John Coulter, Nantwich Food Festival director, said: “Each year we are delighted with the support and generosity shown by local companies who help to deliver such a fabulous festival that we are all so proud of.
“Several new businesses have now joined us and we will be able to stage yet another outstanding event that will show Nantwich in all its historic glory.”
Across the weekend there will be entertainment, exhibitions and demonstrations, offering something for everyone at this family-friendly celebration of food.
Access to the Nantwich Food Festival is free, with a packed programme of events scheduled to take place from Friday – Sunday, September 1-3.
