The Oswestry Food & Drink Festival is being brought to life by a small band of local people who simply want to provide a brilliant opportunity, over 2 (blissfully sunny days – we hope) to showcase the amazing food and talent in and around Oswestry and the Borders – and have a most enjoyable and fun day for everyone in the town! Not to mention, tasting the odd sausage or two.

INTRODUCING The Oswestry Food Festival Team:

John Waine, Festival Director
John is the director of The Best Of Oswestry which is dedicated to promoting the best businesses and events in and around Oswestry. John is keen to help bring visitors to enjoy this buzzing and fascinating market town with so much to offer! He has enjoyed directing the festival since its beginning .

Isabelle Waine, Secretary
Isabelle, like all the food festival team, just loves her food. She is equally passionate about where the food comes from, who grows it, sells it and cooks it. Isabelle has lived in the gorgeous Glyn Ceiriog Valley for the last 14 years and loves working and shopping in Oswestry – it’s a friendly town, with a range of shops and markets, restaurants, pubs, cafes and tea shops that many would envy. Isabelle thinks it is wonderful to be able to talk to shop owners and market stall holders, get their advice on the right cut of meat, the right fish, the freshest fruit and vegetables and just take time out to really enjoy the experience. Isabelle frequently has need for coffee to allow her wallet time to cool down and to give her arms, and mouth, a rest!
