There will be a food theatre located under the historic stone portico Buttercross with national, regional and top local chefs. Other events include a floating market on the nearby tow path of the Shropshire Union Canal, a Fodder and Tipple trail with tasty stop offs including beer sampling, street entertainers, children's cookery classes, live comedy, and a grand finale jazz concert in the historic St Mary's Church in the centre of the town.
