Sponsorship deal for Derbyshire Food and Drink Fair 2014

9 April 2014

Derbyshire's premier culinary celebration has been boosted with the continuation of a major sponsorship deal.

Elvaston Castle is hosting our annual Derbyshire Food and Drink Fair on May 17 and 18.

McArthurGlen's East Midlands Designer Outlet is sponsoring the cookery theatre for the third year running. And Toyota Manufacturing UK is supporting the Japanese Pavilion, where there will be Japanese cookery demonstrations and an opportunity to experience a tea ceremony.

Around 15,000 people are expected to attend over the two days − with more than 150 stallholders selling produce from Derbyshire and further afield.

Our Cabinet Member for Jobs, Economy and Transport, Councillor Joan Dixon said:

We're grateful to both McArthurGlen's East Midlands Designer Outlet and Toyota for their support for this year's Food and Drink Fair.

"There will be plenty of activities for the whole family to take part in, and all set in the wonderful grounds of Elvaston Castle."

Kenny Murray, Centre Manager at McArthurGlen's East Midlands Designer Outlet said:

We are delighted to be part of the Derbyshire Food and Drink Fair for the third year running. At the centre we pride ourselves on our great range of home and kitchenware brands, and are looking forward to supporting a fun and enjoyable initiative in our surrounding area."

Celebrity chef Dean Edwards, who was previously on MasterChef and a resident chef on This Morning on ITV, has signed up to stage cooking demonstrations alongside local chefs in the cookery theatre at the fair.

Tickets cost £5 for adults and £1 children and the fair is open on Saturday from 10am to 5pm and on Sunday from 10am to 4pm.

There are still a few stalls available − the last date to book is 16 April. Any business wishing to find out about sponsorship opportunities or stalls contact Stephanie Walsh on 01629 538464 or email Stephanie.walsh@derbyshire.gov.uk.
