The best sights, smells and tastes of the region’s produce and entertainment will come to Salisbury on Sunday as the city’s Food and Drink Festival Market Day will take place.

More than 60 stalls with fill the Market Place and Guildhall Square on September 10, with a jam-packed day of chef demonstrations, workshops and fun for families.

Run by the Salisbury Arts Centre, during the day there will be demonstrations from Peter Vaughan who, having worked in Michelin star restaurants across the world, will demonstrate dishes that would have been enjoyed in medieval Salisbury – to mark almost 800 years since the city was granted a Royal Charter.

Peter will be joined by Trowbridge-trained chef Tom Doddsy, along with Jeff the Chef, who will demonstrate the best of cooking from around the county and further afield.

After enjoying a day of demonstrations and street entertainment there will be the opportunity to sample some of the finest local produce, along with a beer tent stocked with local beers, ales and ciders.

There will also be fun for children and big kids alike at the Little Pickle’s Picnic, and a Monster Munch activity with Melanie Evans to go on a journey to discover what sort of food a monster might eat.

Crowds will also be able to enjoy Vaudeville hat juggling, spinning plates, tea dancing, acrobats, musical saw playing as Circo Rum Baba’s Bicycle Bistro and Swervy World musical waiters will delight onlookers throughout the city.

For a relaxed afternoon acoustic musicians and singer songwriters from Salisbury Arts Centre's Live Lunch sessions will take to the stage in Guildhall Square.
