Beverley Food Festivals Nominated for Rural Oscar 2019

Rural Oscar 2

The Beverley Food Festival has been nominated for the Countryside Alliance  Rural Oscar ( please see the link


This is a great surprise as  it is a public nomination award, so it makes the Town Council very proud that the Beverley Food Festivals have been nominated. 

Beverley Food Festivals won the competition in the tourism section in 2016 for the North of England and went on to be highly commended at national level.    The Food Festivals have been nominated in the Local Food & Drink category with the criteria detailed below.

Local Food and Drink

  • Are the Food Festival and the Christmas Food and Drink Festival  championing ‘local food’ and supporting other local producers?
  • Has the community been put on the map by the quality and diversity of local produce being sold, and breathed life into the community/ local economy?
  • Is there a passionate commitment from the Beverley Town Council - Food Festivals and the ethos and culture of ‘local food’?
  • Has the Food Festival and the Christmas Food and Drink Festival  saved or promoted a traditional local foods that may otherwise have been lost?
  • Would winning this competition reward a really special enterprise and tell a positive story about rural life?

We are quite aware this would not happen without our wonderful community, local food and drink businesses, local  media, local charities, organisations and local people that have supported the Beverley Food Festival since 2006, and the Christmas Festival of Food and Drink established in 2012, to grow the both events within the community. Beverley really has become the local foodie hub and dining room of East Yorkshire.

It would be wonderful if you can endorse out present nomination by using the link above, by 8 December 2018.

This is a great way to  really put Beverley on the map by celebrating and recognising  the local food and drink sector,  rural businesses, produce and importantly our  strong community.
