Prepare your taste buds for the Great Missenden Food Festival taking place over the Easter weekend.

The four-day festival starts on Friday, March 25 and is open each day 10am until 5pm, and 6pm on Saturday, with events and activities for the whole family.

Children can get their fingers sticky making pizza from scratch in the cookery school or find their inner mad scientist, creating jelly explosions in the food laboratory, all included in the cost of your ticket.

The show site has been relocated across the roundabout for 2016, to ensure free onsite parking for all visitors and a larger festival, with more free activities to enjoy.

Event director Hayley Instone said: “We have been working hard to make this year the best yet and with all of the additional free features that have been added for 2016, along with an increase in exhibitors, we think we have done just that. I was born and bred in Buckinghamshire and it is important to me to be able to showcase the best produce that the Chilterns has to offer, alongside artisan produce from around the country and beyond.”

The Market Place will feature up to 150 exhibitors selling and sampling some the best of artisan local, regional and internationally acclaimed produce, as well as a small craft and gift area for those gifts you can’t find on the high street. You will find a tantalising selection including delicious cheeses, sweet treats, local produce, International cuisine and artisan street food.

Celebrity demonstrations include Simon Rimmer, from Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, on Sunday at 3pm.

Ian Cumming, finalist on the Great British Bake Off 2015, on Monday at 10.30am and 3pm.

The Food Festival showground is located off the roundabout at Great Missenden, on the A413 between Amersham and Wendover. The postcode is HP16 9AE. New onsite parking area means that all parking is now onsite and free. On arrival in Great Missenden, follow the yellow food festival directional signs.

Admission - on the day: Adult £4.50, Senior £4, Child (6-16) £1, Family (2 Adults & 2 Children) £10.
