The 2019 Foodies Festival will dish up hundreds of exhibitors and award-winning artisan producers, a Street Food Village, the brand new Cakes and Desserts Theatre, a Kids Cookery School, Vegan Beer Tent, Healthy Living Area, Chef’s Theatre and Food and Drink masterclasses.

Last year's MasterChef champion Kenny Tutt will be appearing again along with the current MasterChef winner and finalists and a host of Great British Bake Off stars and top local chefs showcasing their skills and providing expert culinary tips.

For the second year running, the festival will be supporting Musicians Against Homelessness (MAH) with tickets raising money for UK-wide homelessness charity Crisis.

The MAH live music stage will feature at Foodies Festivals up and down the country. Various venues have their own acts. Headlining at Brighton is Flash, referred to as the world’s most authentic Queen tribute band.
