Gloucester Quays takes Food Festival off the menu
By Rob Freeman | 18th March 2021
This year's Gloucester Quays Food Festival has been cancelled due to continuing uncertainty over the coronavirus.
More than 100,000 people visit the city's Docks for the annual event which features culinary demonstrations from celebrity chefs, live entertainment and artisan produce from across the region.
Jason Pullen, managing director of Lifestyle Outlets who operate the Quays said: "We understand this decision is likely to be disappointing for the many people who look forward to our Food Festival, both locally and those who travel from further afield.
"We have to consider the wider implications of hosting a large scale event of this nature.
"Safety remains our priority and we are grateful for everyone's continued support and we hope to run a successful Food Festival next year."
He said the Quays is looking forward to welcoming back customers when retail, outdoor dinning and The Gym are able to reopen on April 12.
The monthly Orchard Street Markets are due to resume across the May bank holiday weekend (May 1-3).
