Join the Annual Ashby Food Gusto Festival and experience the Region’s Best Food & Drink on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May. Situated in the Bath Grounds in the centre of Ashby de la Zouch there is yet another fantastic lineup yet to come of 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.

Wesley Ewing states: “Food Gusto is all about promoting what the region has to offer in the way of high quality, local-produced food and drink. Our festivals are an explosion on the senses with lots to see and taste, giving people the chance to try new things and also to buy the best food and drink available in our region”


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 included rides, bouncy slide, face painting, henna tattoos, glitter tattoos and children also purchased a special Gusto Bears Picnic Lunch Box which includes a roll, soft drink, cookie and fruit.

There will also be a line up of live music that will be confirmed soon.
