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.

The MFDF Award Shortlists comprise of 6 nominees in each category and are curated by the MFDF Judging Panel.
