Billericay Food & Drink Festival

The Billericay Food & Drink Festival is back for a second year on Sunday 17th July from 11am to 5pm at the Billericay Town Football Club.

Last year’s event proved a huge success, the idea coming from the great amount of food and drink pop ups and innovative businesses that developed during the pandemic serving the local community and organisers Abby and Jodi Knight of Great Idea Events saw a real opportunity to showcase all the local talent under one roof.

With around 1700 visitors enjoying the sunshine last summer, this year you can discover a world of  locally sourced and produced food and drink plus meet the people behind some of our favourite eateries and local brands. There are over 50 stands including Field Of Cheese, Andrews Caribbean Catering, WrapStars, East Coast Chili Company, East End Cuisine Pie & Mash, SouperStars meal prep and bespoke recipes, Abbie Lou Seafood. Outside entertaining ideas come from Caroline Morgan Flowers, Extra Events Essex and Freedom Leisure Hot Tubs.

Entertainment on the day will include Essex favourite DJ Mark Tracey, Rochford-based magician Doug Roden and a charity football match organised by Stanton Hockett supporting Prostate UK.

Aston spoke to Abby Knight.
