Welwyn Garden City’s popular food festival returns to the town centre this weekend.
Cuisine from all around the world will be on offer to foodies in the town centre on Saturday, when Welwyn Garden City plays host to the Oaklands College & WGC World Food Festival.
Promoted by Oaklands College and the WGC Town Centre Partnership, the gourmet’s delight will be bringing together different restaurants and cuisines from across the globe from 11am to 4pm.
Now in its fourth year, the festival will feature more than 20 food stalls, producing culinary delights for visitors to taste, from Indian to Chinese and Italian to French.
You can also grab a free cup of tea or coffee and a doughnut if you cut out the voucher printed in this week’s Welwyn Hatfield Times and take it to the Oaklands College food stall on the day, while stocks last.
As well as the myriad of mouthwatering delicacies, visitors will be able to watch live cooking demonstrations, relax in the picnic area, roam the craft market and take part in fun children’s activities.
Ensuring visitors are entertained throughout the day will be radio station BOB FM, which will introduce live performances from Asian drumming to Oaklands College’s very own Performing Arts and Music students.
Zoe Hancock, principal of Oaklands College, said: “It’s a great opportunity for visitors to try out foods from restaurants they might not have been to before, or buy some nice dishes from their favourite restaurants.
“It is a really unique event bringing local restaurants together to show off their culinary skills to the local community.”
