Without the sponsors the festival wouldnt be where it is today so we would like to say a HUGE thanks to them for making it happen!

Our festival was founded by two people but Beth and Andy quickly became cogs in a much-bigger wheel. 'Team Orange' is made up of many, many more people. There's more than 100 volunteers and there's also the core team of seven, who run the event.

But the ingenuity and hard-work of our sponsors is also essential. So we hope you'll take a minute or two to read up about the people who've made our event what it is.

Mercedes-Benz of Shrewsbury

A huge massive thanks to Mercedes Benz of Shrewsbury - this amazing team continue to support us year after year, and bring glitz and glam (in g-g-gorgeous vehicular form) to our festival. Including an amazing Shrewsbury Food Festival vehicle for us each year.

We know Mercedes-Benz believe in 'The Best or Nothing' and we are so thrilled that they have joined with the Shrewsbury Food Festival Team to create the best Festival in Shropshire!

Monkhouse Food and Drink 

Monkhouse Food and Drink have been with us since our inception. Shrewsbury’s bespoke food and drink agency helps to spread our message – and the message of artisan producers – to Britain’s media.

Thanks to the team at Tudor Healthcare Accountants for understanding us and supporting our festivals.

Wenlock Spring

The Chefs who star on our Chef Demo stage all appear free of charge. They do it for the love of it – there isn’t a big fat pay cheque waiting for them once they’ve finished. The stage itself is sponsored by Wenlock Spring www.wenlockspring.co.uk who were part of our team last year. We’re grateful for their continued support and hope the alliance will continue for many years.


Many of you will enjoy food for a fiver during the Restaurant Safari throughout June. That’s the event that features 14 local restaurants, each of whom is dishing up taster courses for just £5. The event is being bought to you by Monks Estate Agents, who have generously provided us with signage for the event. www.monks.co.uk We’re planning to work with them on the #RestaurantSafari in coming years, making it a much-bigger event.
