Thank you for all your support leading up to and during the Food Festival. We think it was the best ever and the feedback we have got tells us that people really enjoyed the whole experience.
We could not have delivered such a good experience without the support of you and your team at Delmar. They have been absolute stars and we love working with them, everyone is cheerful and enthusiastic and full of bright ideas.

We have set next years date and very much look forward to working with you all again. - Nantwich Food Festival
