Local foodies will be delighted to hear that Nantwich Food Festival will definitely go ahead this year after a two year gap. Festival dates are Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th September inclusive, so plans are full steam ahead for the Festival committee.

Rosemary will be demonstrating on Festival Saturday.

Her most recent initiative is Rosemary’s Online Cookery School, with ‘Cooking Club’ for the novice cook, through to ‘Masterclass’ for the more established home cooks. Over the next few weeks she will showcase a fireside chat about vegetarian food, a focus on pancakes and a pasta masterclass; check out more details at

Sean Wilson was so popular with Festival Foodies in 2018 and again 2019 that we have again booked him for this year on Festival Sunday. Sean first came to our attention as Martin Platt of Coronation Street, but he has also been a serious cook for over 30 years – completely self-taught. His followers will know of his entertaining style whilst creating innovative recipes; he is equally happy creating everything from fine dining through to more rustic, heritage and provincial style dishes.

His many TV appearances, to mention just a few, include: ITV’s This Morning,  Who’s Doing the Dishes?, The Wright Stuff, James Martin’s Saturday Morning,  Celebrity Masterchef, Farmer's Country Showdown, and Channel 4’s What’s Cooking?

Sean’s Saddleworth Cheese Company creates six artisanal cheeses, with provenance as their byword; we can expect to see their use again in his dishes at this year’s Festival. All have been British Cheese Award favourites with Gold medals both nationally and internationally and 36 international awards to date; he is a regular judge at cheese shows.”

The Festival team plans to showcase more celebrity and local chefs, so watch out for more news over the forthcoming months.

Most locals know that the Festival is organised and run entirely by volunteers, and it is unsurprising to hear that the team is now in need of additional help. If you are interested in hearing more about how you could volunteer please get in touch with Ana Martins, the Festival Volunteer Co-ordinator on

Ana tells us that she needs volunteers for over the Festival weekend – be that anything from just two hours to the full weekend; Ana is also looking for someone to champion recycling, so please do get in touch with her if you feel you could fulfil that role. Training and support will be provided for all roles.
