WIN VIP FOODIES FESTIVAL TICKETS and A LUXURY BROIL KING BBQ
Foodies Festival, the UK's biggest celebration of food and drink, returns this summer with 10 taste-bud-tickling festivals across the UK! To celebrate, we are giving away a pair of VIP tickets to a festival of your choice, plus a luxury Broil King BBQ – perfect for firing up the outdoor recipes you will pick up at the festival.
Start your VIP day with a welcome glass of bubbly and red carpet reception at the decadent Deco Noir VIP Lounge before visiting the Artisan Market, where you can shop and sample from over 120 award-winning producers. Then feast on flavours from around the world on the Street Food Avenue - there's a special focus on Brazilian food in celebration of the Olympic host's cuisine, with traditional Brazilian BBQ, cocktails and coffees.
Enjoy priority entry to food & drink masterclasses including the Chefs Theatre, where you can watch Michelin star and celebrity chefs cooking their favourite recipes. Top local chefs also showcase their culinary skills and share insight into 2016's food trends, while healthy living experts pioneer lip-smacking superfood and feel good food recipes to boost your energy levels and make you feel great.
Relax in the Drinks Theatre with rum, champagne, gin and craft beer masterclasses, or test your senses with a blindfolded tasting challenge.
Visit the Cake & Bake Theatre, where Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain and baking extraordinaire Charlotte White will create delicious summer cakes to inspire you to reach for your whips and spatulas at home. Plus, master chocolatier Fiona Shiolti will show you how to make and decorate spectacular handmade chocolates.
After a day of feasting and fun, relax in the Deco Noir VIP Lounge with private Mirror Bar and refreshments, and soak in the atmosphere with live music from the Entertainment Stage and a refreshing cocktail from the Giant Pimm's Teapot or double-decker BarBus.
And, if you are still hungry, there's always the Bug-Eating and Chilli-Eating Competitions to take part in!
