Win a chance to create the Festival Ale for MFDF14 

As preparations get underway for the 2014 Manchester Food and Drink Festival, brewing sponsor Thwaites, is running a competition for a chance to brew the special Festival ale for the 10 day extravaganza in Manchester City Centre.

Be the soundtrack to MFDF 2014!

We're finalising the programme for this year and have some great acts lined up but if you low of some budding talent around the city do let us know. 

Thwaites are on board as Official Brewer to the Festival!

Posted on 11th April 2014

MFDF are delighted that Thwaites Brewery have 'stepped up to the plate' as part of an exciting new 3 year partnership. Thwaites will become the Official Brewer to the Festival, supporting the event through to 2016.

Get involved with the festival Brochure!

Posted on 1st April 2014

Whether you're participating in the festival or not, snap up a page in the MFDF Festival Brochure. It's the hottest food and drink guide of the year, we print about 100,000 copies and we distribute them FREE with the Manchester Evening News. So it makes sense to be in there - you can use the ad to promote your Festival event or offer, or you can just advertise your venue. 

Interested in Exhibiting at MFDF 2014

MFDF is the UK's largest and highest profile urban food and drink festival, established in 1997.

Last year the festival attracted tens of thousands of visitors, and generated over £3.5 million pounds worth of media coverage. During the Festival the hub played host to a fantastic street food fair and independent producers market.
