Sponsorship boost for county food fair

Derbyshire’s premier culinary celebration has been boosted by another major sponsor.

McArthurGlen East Midlands Designer Outlet is backing Derbyshire County Council’s annual Derbyshire Food and Drink Fair, which takes place at Hardwick Hall on May 26 and 27, by sponsoring its cookery theatre, where TV celebrity chef Simon Rimmer will join leading local cooks to stage demonstrations.

Midlands Cooperative Society has already given its backing for a third successive year by sponsoring the gate, but the main role of title sponsor is still available, together with other sponsorship opportunities.

Cllr Kevin Parkinson, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: “We’re grateful to the sponsors who have already given their backing to our annual celebration of the fantastic food and drink which Derbyshire has to offer.”
