Holkham Hall and Estate food festival

Holkham Hall Estate is a beautiful stately home owned by the Coke Family, Lord and Lady Leicester and is set in over 23,000 acres of land near the north Norfolk coast and has over 300 staff, a large organic farm with numerous residential properties and also the world famous Holkham Beach which has featured in many well known films over the past few years.
Slow Food Anglia part of Slow food International approached us at Festivaldelgusto last year to ask if we were able to help with the organisation and logistics of this important food festival, as it is expected that over 3,000 visitors will come to the days festival and over 150 to the evening Italian Sagra styled meal.
The event will be held on Saturday 8th April at the newly refurbished and there will be up to thirty local food producers and traders in the Lady Elizabeth Wing during the day as well as street food traders and several local charities with stands in the outer courtyard.
Festivaldelgusto will be helping with the promotion of the event on social media, arranging advertising in local media including radio and TV and also with the organisation of the traders and financial systems involved with the event.


The main aim of the Holkham festival is to promote small local artisan producers and their produce but it will also be used to publicise the food and drink events and workshops that are being held in Norwich, Cambridge and London during 2017, so as well as local Norfolk producers several Italian food businesses based in the UK have also been invited to the festival to take part and promote their produce.
Holkham is a prestigious venue and we are very pleased to have been asked to be involved and hope to be able to be part of the events team at the Holkham estate later in 2017 and also ongoing in 2018 and beyond, where we will bring our emphasis of Mediterranean food and small artisan producers to these large and popular festivals.
Festivaldelgusto will also be working with Olivaverde at the Holkham event to promote the first dedicated artisan olive oil event in Malta this November and also the new Mediterranean olive oil academy in Malta that will be launched in the spring of 2018 on the Island.

We are pleased to be involved with several small local food and drink businesses who have plans to hold food festivals and food related events across the city this December and in 2017, one of these is the local street food group, Feast on the Street who will be holding an Christmas festival at the Shoe factory Social club on the 10th December.

The venue where the festival is being held is a fantastic old factory and a warehouse near the centre of Norwich and unfortunately t…

Festivaldelgusto will be working closely with the olive oil group Olivaverde at the new and exciting Breks Food festival in Norfolk this September. Both groups have been involved with food, drink and lifestyle festivals in London and the east of England for many years and we are looking forward to our joint cooperating with the new Breks Food festival to be held at the Fire Pit near Swaffham in September which is being held in conjunction with the annual Slow Food festival that has been held at the Fire Pit Camp over the past three years.
