Ashby Food Gusto Festival on Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th May

Join us for two days of the Region’s best food & drink producers in Ashby de la Zouch; close to the A42 so easily accessible for visitors from Leicestershire, Derbyshire and across the region.

Situated in the Bath Grounds in the centre of Ashby de la Zouch there is yet another fantastic line up with more than 60 producers and products from venison, pies, pickles, pates, farmhouse cheese, preserves, olives, artisan bread, crepes, hand crafted chocolates, patisseries to local wines, beers, ciders, spirits and more.  There is something for everyone.

Why not make a day of it and enjoy lunch out where you can choose between wood fired pizza, organic beef burgers, venison and bison, spicy samosas, vegetarian/vegan dishes, caribbean BBQ, Indian cuisine and Thai to name but a few.

These could all be washed down with local craft ale and cider, new British cocktails and English wines grown and produced in the Midlands.



There will be a great range of live music during both days of the festival, with a full line up to be posted shortly. This year Food Gusto has teamed up again with the Rotary Clubs of Ashby de la Zouch who will be running a Teddy Bear’s Picnic from 11-3pm at the event. At the Teddy bears picnic children can enjoy Punch and Judy shows and join in the ‘Find Rotary Gusto Bears Challenge’.

Other children’s entertainment includes rides, bouncy slide, face painting, henna tattoos, glitter tattoos and children can also purchase a special Gusto Bears Picnic Lunch Box which includes a roll, soft drink, cookie and fruit.
