Food festivals & events
Welsh Black beef and Welsh Mountain mutton, succulent lamb with the fragrance of hill herbs, salmon and sea trout from crystal-clear rivers, real ales and farmhouse cider to cut through a thirst and cheese to make a Frenchman weep with envy.
<p>When food is this good, it seems a shame not to celebrate. Not that we need an excuse to raise a glass to our brewers or dedicate a meal to our farmers, growers, butchers and bakers. We do it every day, to be honest.</p>
<p>Sometimes we like to make it official and throw a bit of party. We call them food festivals. Fresh local produce with entertainment attached and, since the fields, streams and hills of Mid Wales are pretty much one big larder, you might stumble across one anywhere.</p>
<p>At the Brecon Beacons National Park Cente in Libanus in August, at the glorious gardens of Glansevern Hall at Berriew in September, or in Brecon’s iconic market hall in October, for instance.</p>
<p>In Hay-on-Wye they have two bites of the locally-grown cherry with a food festival in June followed by a winter food festival in November.</p>
<p>At the Royal Welsh Show in Builth Wells every July, their £1.6 million food hall showcases some of the finest food and drink producers in Mid Wales. Good job it covers a whopping 1,362 square metres.</p>
