Northern Food and Drink Virtual Festival

The Northern Food and Drink Virtual Festival is a brand new event to support and showcase Northern producers, distributors and some of the great Chefs within the region in these difficult times.

The brainchild of Sean Noonan, Head Chef at the Wellbeing Farm Wedding and Events Venue, Jacky Moss from Creative Agenda and Craig Sherrington, National Finalist in the 2018 Great British Menu, the show will run entirely virtually through their dedicated Facebook page and will feature ‘live’ demonstrations from some of the Top Chefs in the Industry including former Great British Menu and Masterchef contestants, talented catering students and some really exceptional home cooks.

The event will take place on 24th and 25th May and will have talks and master classes from leading industry professionals and will operate through virtual online ‘tents' with a wide selection of suppliers showcasing product and show related offers.

Local food blogger and Handpicked Magazine/Yorkshire Times Columnist, Paul Fogarty, aka The Aperitif Guy will be one of a number of fabulous people taking part.

The team will also be supporting their nominated charity Hospitality Action and, whilst there is obviously no charge for virtual admission! would welcome a small donation to help facilitate the great work that they do. To follow the event:
