About Us


The Alnwick Food Festival has been an important feature of Alnwick’s autumn events calendar since 2005 when it was founded by Don Watson. The Festival provides a showcase for local food producers and locally produced food. It coincides with the harvest time and is a natural time to celebrate local produce.

Until 2009 the Food Festival was managed and led by the Alnwick Lions Club. In 2010 a new Steering Committee was formed which developed and managed the Food Festival until 2014.

In 2016 Local Living, a social enterprise which has operated Alnwick Markets since 2006, agreed to take on management and promotion of the Food Festival under the guidance of a dedicated Steering Committee.
