Presteigne Food & Flower Festival
Thanks to all who came and enjoyed our Food and Flower Festival in 2019. Thousands of people filled the streets of Presteigne and enjoyed the sights, sounds and tastes.
We will be taking a break in 2020 due to the change in the Early May Bank Holiday to Friday the 8th May in order to celebrate VE Day.
But we are planning a garden related event in the summer of 2020 – more information as soon as we have it – and are already preparing for the Food and Flower Festival 2021.
Hope to see you soon!

At last year’s festival, the sun shone and food and plant stalls lined the pretty streets of Presteigne. The shops threw open their doors, and the town thronged with bigger crowds than it has ever seen before. Street food stalls occupied the courtyard behind St Andrew’s Hall where the churchyard was full of families eating picnics on the grass in the sunshine.
