Worthing held its very first Food and Drink Festival in 2012 and it is getting bigger and better year on year. The Worthing Town Centre Initiative, with support from the Proto Restaurant Group, are delighted that this year the festival is going to be a real “Flavour of the Seaside”.

With nearly 70 Stalls located in the lovely setting of Steyne Gardens there will be something to tempt every palate.  If you are looking for a snack, something more substantial to eat or goodies to take away then make sure you find time to explore all our exhibitors have on offer.

Local Chefs will be on hand to create their signature dishes and on Sunday MasterChef Champion 2018, Kenny Tutt, will be on stage to demonstrate the skills that helped him lift the trophy.  As well as the stalls and cookery demonstrations there will be competitions, and Children’s entertainment.

This event is a celebration of the Food and Drink offer in Worthing with many of the local restaurants and bars taking part.  Worthing has an amazing culinary offer with over 140 places to eat and drink in the Town Centre alone.  We are fast becoming a food destination with many of our restaurants and bars now receiving regional and national recognition.   There is a full listing of Food & Drink businesses on the Worthing Town Centre website or pick up one of our new Worthing Town Centre Guides.

We haven’t forgotten the drinks and there are licensed bars serving Prosecco, Cocktails, Gins, Beer and Vodkas.  The festival will be operating a Challenge 25 policy and we kindly ask you to consume alcohol in the area provided as this is a family event.

We hope you come along to enjoy a flavour of the Seaside at the 2019 Worthing Food & Drink Festival

Bon Appetite !!
