Producers & Chef Demos

This year's food festival will see some wonderful exhibitors, giving crowds the chance to sample and buy products from spicy treats to smelly cheese and sweet delights all washed down with some lovely coffee - and the odd tipple or two... take a look at who is here for 2018

Chef Demos

A food festival wouldn’t be complete without the demonstrations of some culinary skills from some of the best local chefs Newport and South Wales  has to offer. These will be located in both Newport Market (sponsored by Newport Now) and Pobl Group offices at the top of High Street.

Plus, new for 2018, there will also be a programme of chef demonstrations taking place on Usk Plaza in Friars Walk where chefs from the Friars Walk restaurants will be showcasing their skills throughout the day.

 Take a look at our chef demo programme.
