About the Festival

The ancient market town of Sedbergh lies at the foot of the Howgill fells, and is a perfect centre for exploring the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District and beyond.

Sedbergh is England’s Book Town, offering a treasure trove of new, second hand and collector’s books. The town is a centre of excellence for education, and you will also find speciality shops, and cafés, pubs and bistros serving locally sourced produce.

With some of the best mountain biking trails in the UK, fabulous walks on the doorstep, and a rich history of heritage and culture, Sedbergh is a destination not to be missed.

From the prized Cumbrian Rough Fell sheep and other high quality livestock on the Howgill fells, to the wild garlic growing in abundance in Akay Woods, Sedbergh is spoilt for choice with local ‘field to fork’ produce.

Now in its second year, this festival celebrates not only food and drink, but also the culture, people and businesses of Sedbergh and the surrounding area.

We look forward to welcoming you.
