Our Purpose

The Alcester and Forest of Arden Food Festival Ltd aims to promote regional fine food and drinks by bringing suppliers and shoppers to the beautiful and historic town of Alcester. The organisers wish to encourage growers and producers of specialist foods across the region providing an exciting and colourful market for their produce.

Alcester has always welcomed and supported events that encourage visitors to the town. The Food Festival takes place in the picturesque High Street, Church Street and Henley Street, which are closed to traffic on the day. In fact the Festival takes over the town!

Year on year, our Festivals are growing in success and have proved extremely popular with local residents and the many visitors to Alcester. A bonus for our town has been more awareness of what Alcester and its surrounding area can offer. Our aim is to continue working with the support of Stratford upon Avon District Council in the business development of country towns and local tourism.

Alcester and Forest of Arden Food Festival Ltd is a not for profit Community Benefit Society, a Registered Society regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.  Each year donations are made to local charities and organisations and any surplus funds are re-invested in improving the Festival and its infrastructure..
