East Midlands food and drink producers have flocked to be part of a special Diamond Jubilee event in Mansfield next month.

All the stalls at Mansfield Jubilee Food and Drink Fair on Tuesday June 5th are booked, with a waiting list in operation.

Now East Midlands Fine Foods is inviting firms to take part in a food and drink marquee at the Festival of Heroes event in Grantham, which is being staged on July 7th and 8th.

The aim of the event, which takes place at the Prince William of Gloucester Barracks, is to raise the profile of the Territorial Army, as well as raise money for Help the Heroes charity and ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.

A speciality food and drink marquee celebrating the best of British food and drink will be staged within the festival.

“We’re delighted that so many traders are keen to take part in the Mansfield Jubilee Food and Drink Fair, as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in the town,” said East Midlands Fine Foods event organiser Toni Jarvis. “We’re now fully booked, but have a waiting list in case of any cancellations.

“However, there’s still space for traders who’d like to join us for the Festival of Heroes event in Grantham in July.”

East Midlands Fine Foods, which promotes food and drink producers from Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland, runs a number of food and drink events in the region, including the monthly Regional and Speciality Food and Drink Market in Nottingham.

Items on sale at the Mansfield event include exotic, fresh and cooked meats, pickles, cheeses, olives and baklava, cakes and coffee.
