All About Pies

All About Pies began in 2012 from John and Caroline’s passion for food and cooking, and they are proud to show off their top-quality old-fashioned hand-raised pies over the course of the festival weekend.

With a menu that changes seasonally, All About Pies has a great menu of hearty food, such as a duck and rhubarb pie, wild boar and chestnut and the intriguing “Medieval Mince Pye”!

Fat Annies

Custom-made hot dogs with natural, gluten-free ingredients, Fat Annie’s will be bringing a slice of New York to Chorlton on the Friday. From spicy chorizo sausages to homemade pickles and relishes, it’s impossible to look at their menu without something tickling your fancy.

Go Get Stuffed

As if their name wasn’t eye-catching enough, Go Get Stuffed are also infamous for their naan-wiches. Using local suppliers and with a focus on sustainability, Go Get Stuffed will be at the festival on the Friday and Saturday with their selection of fantastic burgers, hotdogs and sides!

Tampopo

If burgers aren’t your thing, head over to Tampopo for their delicious take on east asian streetfood. They’ll be here on Friday and Saturday to bring you sizzling curry dishes and wok-fried noodles!

Cider Tasting – Saturday 13th July

Our popular tutored cider tasting event will return on Saturday 13th July!

Limited tickets are available for this event which will give you access to the festival site from 12pm, an hour before we open to the public.

The event will begin with an introduction from our resident cider expert, who will give you a little of the history of traditional cider making before getting down to the tasting. You’ll be taken through the differences between different styles, tastes and varieties of traditional cider and perry – from sweet to very dry, from fruity Hereford varieties to the more earthy Northern styles.

Once you’ve learnt the basics, the bar will be opened for you to explore the cider range for yourself. You’ll get around a half an hour to sample freely before the festival opens at 1pm.

Tickets for this special event are just £20 which includes festival entry for the day, the tasting event including all cider and perry from noon to 1pm, plus your festival glass and programme.

Tickets are available to purchase below.
