The company that now runs Warwick Market is to host its first Food and Drink Festival in the town on Sunday (May 24).

John Young, one of the directors of Leamington-based family firm CJ’s Events, has booked no less than 45 food and drink traders to showcase their wares in Market Place.

After winning sponsorship from Rugby Fitted Kitchens, John has gone on to organise cookery demonstrations with chefs from the Rose and Crown, Miccato, The Cape of Good Hope and an expert from Neff appliances.

There will also be a number of bands performing between 11am and 7pm.

John said: “The markets on Saturday are going really well now and we’re getting lots of good feedback.

“So we thought why not try and organise our first food festival on a Sunday.

“Warwick’s main square is an ideal venue for this sort of event and as well as the live cookery demonstrations we’ll also have some live bands.

“Among those coming are Ellipsis (pictured above), who played to a capacity crowd at the Ricoh Arena after winning the Wasps Unplugged competition, as well as the pop/rock outfit Chasing Deer and singer Tom Jarvis.”
