Fox Valley Food Festival to host its own “bake off”

30 May 2018

North Sheffield’s Fox Valley shopping centre is preparing to host its first two day Food Festival in June and the weekend event will feature its own version of “Bake Off.”

The event takes place on 16th and 17th of June and will feature more than 50 stalls as well as a demo kitchen and a packed programme of musical entertainment and events.

And the centre is also calling out to local amateur cooks to get involved with the “Big Bake Off” in the bid to find the area’s best bake - whether it be cakes, biscuits, tarts or buns.

Bakers of all ages can get involved and are asked to bring their entries to the craft stall in the fountain area by 10:30am on Saturday 16th June. Karen Tyas who runs the Crème Fresh café at Fox Valley will be helping out with the judging.

The Food Festival has been organised to celebrate Fox Valley’s second birthday on June 16th and Lexus Sheffield is the main sponsor of what it’s hoped will become an annual event. Other sponsors supporting the event include Liberty Steel and Elite Signs as well as The Fountain Company and Hummingbird Bridal.

Everything including delicious cheeses, food to go, pies curries and pizzas will be available as well as fudge, cupcakes and ice cream.

The event will feature a family picnic area and there will also be a prosecco bar and a beautiful vintage gin cart – vegan street food will be available as well as some delicious gluten free options.  Local favourite Bradfield Brewery will also have a pop up bar.

Centre manager at Fox Valley Sandra Barley said: “We are really excited about the Fox Valley Food Festival and we want the community to get involved so we’re putting a call out for everyone to get baking for our special version of Bake Off.

“It’s going to be a fantastic weekend and also co-includes with the centres second birthday so we have lots planned to celebrate. “

The event will run from 10am-5pm on 16th and 17th June. To keep up to date with events at news at Fox Valley go to www.foxvalleysheffield.co.uk
