Now the sun is just about shining, it’s time to get out and about and enjoy discovering some cheeky new tipples.
If you’re in the UK, there’s an awful lot on in August, so we’ve compiled a list of some of the best places to go – be it Food and Drink Festivals, beer tasting, or whisky workshops.
This is part one – from 1st-15th August. Part two is coming up next week!
4th August: Clitheroe Food Festival
7th-11th August: Great British Beer Festival, London Olympia
9th-12th August: Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival

10th-11th August: Northumbria Food and Wine Festival
Tickets are £20, but this promises to be packed full of wine merchants and local breweries who’d love you to try their wares. There’s also absolutely tons of guest speakers guiding you through all you need to know about vino.
10th-12th August: Foodies Festival visits Edinburgh
Oh, how we love the Foodies Festival. It’s touring the UK, and next week it rocks up at Edinburgh. There’s exhibitors galore from all over the land, but there are also dozens of events: from wine masterclasses from various regions (Loire, Bordeaux, Spain & Portugal to name a few) to summer cocktail classes. Perfect.
11th-12th August: Cardigan River & Food Festival
Another event bursting with fantastic exhibitors: such as Welsh fruit wines and medieval mead. There’s also cider a-plenty and even some speciality tea for Welsh water!
15th August: Members Whisky Club – Whisky Cocktails, Southbank Centre
16th-19th August: Ipswich Beer Festival
Taste over 180 beers and 80 ciders in the company of live music on the water front. Perfect.
