Castle Howard


Castle Howard will host Dean Edwards from ITV Lorraine, renowned local chefs Nigel Brown and Michelin-starred Andrew Pern from The Star in Yorkshire


For 300 years the Howard family have welcomed visitors to Castle Howard, one of the greatest stately homes in Europe. This Autumn, Fantastic Food Festivals will descend on this opulent NEW location and work its magic to create the ultimate food and drink festival for all the family to enjoy.

John Hoy, CEO of Castle Howard says: We're looking forward to welcoming everyone to our Fantastic Food Festival in Castle Howard's tranquil and ornate gardens. Castle Howard certainly has all the ingredients to create the perfect festival - with acres of woodland walks, temples, lakes and fountains to explore with breathtaking views across an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty."

Jeff Harper is the Director of Fantastic Food Festivals, he comments: "We're delighted to organise a Fantastic Food Festival for the first time at this spectacular venue. We're looking forward to celebrating local and regional food and drink at this beautiful historical venue; from artisan bread and pastries, mussels, homemade Ginger Beer, gourmet sausages, homemade pork pies and fudge to gin, prosecco and craft beers with plenty of sampling opportunities along the way."

The Festival Kitchen and Talks and Tastings Hub is a hive of activity during each festival with a full programme of fascinating demonstrations from talented chefs as well as food and drink experts. Castle Howard will host Dean Edwards from ITV Lorraine, renowned local chefs Nigel Brown and Michelin-starred Andrew Pern from The Star in Yorkshire. For something completely different, prepare to be amazed with food illusionist Ben Churchill who creates incredible deserts into everyday objects, anyone for marzipan beans on toast or sponge cake pizza?

The youngest members of the family won't be forgotten at the food festival. After sampling a wide selection sweet treats and a gourmet BBQ, children can run wild in the extensive grounds and adventure playground then enjoy the garden games and face painting.
