Described by Cheshire Life as ‘Cheshire’s premier food event’, Congleton Food and Drink Festival is a celebration of high quality artisan foods produced locally and from around the world.

Local film maker, Paul Millican, first made a video of our Festival back in 2012 when he worked with us as a volunteer. Paul is now a professional video maker so we were delighted when he offered to come back this year and make a new video of the Festival.
