Food, Drink & Craft

Enjoy some of the finest produce from the three counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire as well as the Cider Festival and Cheese and Dairy Produce Show.  Once you’ve over-indulged, work off those calories by browsing the craft stalls (okay, so maybe just a few calories…).

Food and Drink

With a shedload of the best local produce on offer, the Royal Three Counties Show is a foodie’s dream. Our location at the heart of the three counties means that we’re blessed with an abundance of produce from surrounding farms. It’ll all be ready for you here to sample. And even if you don’t have time to try it all on site, there’ll be plenty that you can take home to try later.

If all that wasn’t enough, you’ll find great produce from further afield in the Food and Drink Marquee next door.

New Cookery Theatre

Head over to our new look Cookery Theatre in the Food & Drink Hall and be inspired by top chef Matt Slocombe as he cooks meals from the produce found at the show.  Matt will be welcoming special guests on stage including producers from the Cider & Perry Festival.
