The Mold Food and Drink Festival will celebrate its eleventh year in 2016

The Mold Food and Drink Festival will celebrate its 11th year on Saturday, September 17 and Sunday, September 18 and organisers are reporting that it will be the biggest yet.

To celebrate, we have teamed up with the organisers to offer readers the chance to win one of five family tickets to the festival.

With more than 130 food and drink producers, including a record number attending for the first time, there will be even more variety of delectable delights to try, buy and take home.

In addition, the large open air food court and seating areas provide the perfect spot to savour mouth-watering street food, wines, local ales, ciders and much more.

Festival chairman John Les Tomos said: “The festival is a hugely successful showcase for our local food sector and has done a lot to develop the town as a foodie destination. This year it will be the biggest we have staged so far, it’s fantastic to see it grow each year.

“Over 13,000 people attended last year from across North Wales, Cheshire, the Wirral and other parts of the UK and we’re anticipating similar numbers, if not more, this year.”

Headlining Sunday’s cookery theatre programme is celebrity chef Nick Nairn. Well-known for his television appearances, cookery books, and highly acclaimed Nick Nairn Cook Schools in Scotland, Nick will inspire festival audiences with three stunning cookery demonstrations. In between demos he will be signing copies of one of his books, Nick Nairn Cook School Cookbook.

On the Saturday, celebrity chef Graham Tinsley MBE will take to the stage joined by local chefs from the North Wales Culinary Guild.

In an exciting schedule of culinary masterclasses chefs will also prepare a selection of dishes featured in the Festival’s new Flavours of Flintshire recipe book which will be available to purchase on the day.

The Interactive Zone will host art and craft activities by Spavens and the popular Children’s Cookery School and Food Science Lab offering free, fun cookery sessions throughout the weekend.
