Oaklands and WGC Food Festival


TASTE buds will be tingling as a food festival makes its way to Welwyn Garden City tomorrow (Saturday).

Cuisine from across the globe will be there to try, complemented by salsa, Zumba and African drumming.

The Oaklands and Welwyn Garden City Food Festival will take place in the town centre between 11am to 4pm.

The event will feature more than 25 food stalls producing culinary delights for visitors to taste, from Indian to Japanese and Italian to Caribbean.

Every hour food-lovers will be able to watch cooking demonstrations in the main atrium in the Howard Centre – hopefully leaving people with some fresh ideas of their own.

Zoe Hancock, principal of Oaklands College, said: “It is a great opportunity for visitors to try out foods from restaurants they might not have been to before, or buy some lovely dishes from their favourite restaurants.

“It is a really unique event bringing local restaurants together to show off their culinary skills to the local community.”

On the day their will be fun activities for children, craft markets and other stalls will include the town Centre Partnership, Welwyn Hatfield Therapists and Digswell Nurseries.

Entertainment will also be provided by the Folkstock Arts Foundation and music students from Oaklands College.

If anyone fancies something more traditional, they are welcome to go to the Free Church, in Parkway, between 10am and 4pm for cream tea as they celebrate the festivities.
