For this year’s Easter weekend Chester Racecourse will be opening its gates to five-hundred campers in caravans, tents and motorhomes while they visit the annual Chester Food, Drink & Lifestyle Festival.
There is no other location in the United Kingdom where so many campers can stay in the heart of a historical city that is also located right next to one of the biggest food and drink festivals in the UK. The organisers anticipate they will have over 27,000 visitors during the three-day event. With the delicious smells of the festival drifting across the campsite, campers are going to have the best corner shop in the county, right on their doorstep.
The racecourse will open its gates to campers from Thursday 5th April to Bank Holiday Monday on the 9th and motorhome owners are booking up places very quickly. The Camping and Caravanning Club have reminded those attending to make sure that their motorhome insurance policy is up to date. As well as the festival, campers can also discover all of the wonderful attractions Cheshire has to offer.
Festival Chairman and Cheshire Taste Cafe proprietor, Jane Mooney, said “The festival is a wonderful opportunity to see much of our local produce at its peak as well as learn our chefs’ secrets as to how you can get the very best out of our wonderful food and drink that’s available on our doorstep. We are looking forward to welcoming 500 campers who are booking their place for what will be a great weekend.”
There will be plenty to keep campers entertained with celebrity chef demonstrations making a welcome return. For anyone bringing the whole family to the festival there will be activities to keep the children entertained including kids cooking workshops. Due to popular demand, the festival is also welcoming back the ‘try and buy’ restaurant area where visitors are able to sample dishes from fifty regional restaurants.
