This year's Cheltenham Food & Drink Festival, 23rd to 25th June 2023, in Montpellier Gardens, is just what we all need
after a cold winter indoors; be sure not to miss it. Amongst this year's Festival's highlights will be Lisa Faulkner, the
actress, cookery writer and celebrity co-host of "John and Lisa's Kitchen." Lisa will be giving a cooking demonstration
on Saturday, 24th June, where you can learn new tips and tricks on becoming a Master Chef.
During the three-day Festival, the Lansdown Kitchen Chef's Theatre will host several inspiring local chefs who will
demonstrate their creative cooking, sharing their passion for food and some of their culinary tips.


• Yealands Winery is an opportunity to sample some of the best wine from New Zealand. The coast surrounding their vineyard inspires this wine, so close to the ocean that the sea spray can mist the vines. The beauty of New Zealand's environment influences how they craft wine, respectful of nature and the land, sustainable winemaking and creating at its best. In addition to the wine masterclass, wine experts offer a range of free wine talks. The tastings include wines from South Africa, New Zealand, Italy, California, France, and Washington State, USA.

• • Cheese masterclasses, a cheese lover's dream to sample the delights on offer in our masterclasses hosted by Ned Palmer, the UK's leading expert on cheese and author.
• • The Great British Cheese Renaissance
• • Extreme Cheesing – how can a cheese smell so bad but taste so good?
• • France vs Britain – comparing two great Cheese cultures
• • Ark of Cheese – exploring Goat, Cow and Sheep cheese
• • Six Counties Cheese with Beer and Cider matching

Grab a friend and discover why cheese is as complex, intriguing, and unique as wine.

• • Live music offers some of the bands around; the Whisky Priests bring you the luck, charm, and talent of the Irish, and Splat Rat return with their traditional folk music, taking songs of old and giving them a modern-day twist. Join friends and family and relax to the music with a glass of Prosecco perfectly chilled.
