A Visit To Chesterfield Food And Drink Festival

I love Chez Vegas, or Chesterfield to give it its proper name, it’s such a friendly place – and my Mummy Bird’s family hail from there. The Man Bird and I popped in early this morning to visit the Food and Drink Festival that Edge Events are hosting in Queen’s Park, and you can’t help but admire the gorgeous setting of the park itself.



We grabbed a couple of Flatbreads from Welbeck Bakehouse, and found a shaded spot on a bench near the bandstand. There is a huge choice of food, drink, and craft stands to browse; we spotted our friends from Hogg Norton and went to congratulate them on their recent success at the Great Taste Awards.

His Nibs is a Gin fiend (aren’t we all?!), so I treat him to a bottle of the Mojito Gin from Derbyshire Distillery. We also tried their Lemon Sherbet offering, which is very yummy in case you’re wondering!

The team from The Orangery at St. Elphin’s were there too; look out for their Chef’s cookery demo tomorrow (Sunday 4th August) at 11am, followed by a demo from celeb chef, Lesley Waters.

Local hero Simon Davidson and his team from The Cheese Factor were there too, with their amazing range of local and specialty cheeses. Simon is set to do a cookery demo tomorrow, after Lesley’s slot, so stick around and show your support to him.

Kids are well catered for at this event with Frederick’s Ice Cream vans dotted around, and their own area of rides and entertainment. Dogs are more than welcome at the event and in the park itself, although the resident flock of Canada Geese may think otherwise!

The event is open until 10pm tonight, and from 10am – 8pm tomorrow, 4th August 2019.

Enjoy, and remember to stay safe in the sun

Here are a few of our photos from the event.
