The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is once again looking forward to welcoming the annual Lampeter Food Festival to its campus later this month.

Lampeter Food festival

The Lampeter Food Festival is run by a small group of volunteers led by Town Councillor, Cllr Elin Jones.  This year the event has attracted around 100 stalls which will be selling a mixture of food, drink and crafts. A wonderful mixture of local wines, heavenly fudge, Pakistani street food, local ales, preserves to suit every meal and much more will be available on the day.

Staff at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David are proud to support such an important and successful local event.  Dr Jeremy Smith, Dean for the Faculty of Humanities and Performing Arts, said:

“We’re very much looking forward to welcoming the Lampeter Food Festival to our campus once again this year.  The University has been hosting the festival on its beautiful Lampeter campus for a number of years now and staff very much enjoy supporting the event in various ways on the day.  Once again this year, staff from the University will be taking part in various activities and will be on hand to help on the day.

It’s such an important event for the town, and for Ceredigion, both economically and culturally, with thousands of people attending the event every year. Elin and the rest of the organising committee work so hard year on year which has ensured that the event has grown and developed over the years.  This year’s event promises to be even bigger.”        

Chair of the Organising Committee and local Town Councillor, Cllr Elin Jones said:

“Once again there will be something for everyone with a record-breaking number of stalls. With more than 100 stalls there will be plenty on offer as well as culinary crafts and music, making this is one of Wales' best-loved food festivals. We’re looking forward to another brilliant event, with that unique mix of excellent food and entertainment for all, in a relaxing atmosphere within the beautiful University grounds.  Please come and join us, everybody is welcome.”

The Lampeter Food Festival is being held on Saturday 28 July 2018 and is free to all.  The official opening is at 10.00am and the festival will close at 5 pm.  For further information please visit http://www.lampeterfoodfestival.org.uk/ or go to the Festival’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Lampeterfoodfestival/
