Feast Hinckley, the food and drink festival organised by the Borough Council, returns to Argents Mead in Hinckley town centre on Saturday and Sunday 6 and 7 August. 

The festival will feature over 45 vendors offering a range of national and international cuisine. Five live bands and performers Acsia, The Jigantics, Debbie Lacey, Richie Phillips and Amy Lancaster will play across the weekend and a 120ft giant inflatable assault course sponsored by Hinckley BID will be available for kids (minimum age five years) and big kids at just 50p per go! 

Other highlights will include local radio station Fosse 107, mini-bikers, children’s sandpit, further entertainment and more. Even four-legged friends have not been forgotten with stalls selling a variety of pet treats!

Free admission (charges apply for some activities). The event is open from 10am to 5pm each day. For further updates visit the Facebook page @feasthinckley 

John Coward, Assistant Town Centre Manager said:

Visitors and residents can look forward to a great weekend, with plenty of food options, including gluten free, vegetarian and vegan. We are also pleased to let people know that 60% of the vendors are located within 10 miles of the town centre. That’s not only good for the environment but great news that within this area we can offer so much variety.

Executive Member for Culture, Leisure, Tourism and Town Centres at the Borough Council, Councillor Keith Nichols said:

Last year was a great success and we are delighted that we can offer residents and visitors such a wide range of food and drink options – the festival is already fully booked, which hopefully speaks volumes as to the popularity of this event. We can offer something for everyone. We do anticipate the town centre will be particularly busy throughout this weekend and so we encourage visitors to use public transport or walk in where possible. It should be a great weekend and we look forward to welcoming everybody.
