The Meadow Croft Food & Drink Festival 2022

Saturday 13th August - Sunday 14th August 2022 


Music & Munch

After a 2 successful year, we will be making our Food & Drink Festival, bigger and better than ever for 2022 with lots of old favourites but also with some new and exciting stalls and products to tempt you.

We will host a selection of some of the finest artisan food & drink suppliers we can find, many of which are based locally. Enjoy different cuisines and new flavours with our eat in food stalls or why not pick up some take home food & drinks such as chutneys, sauces, jams and locally produced alcohol from the market. All whilst the children have their face painted or have fun playing at the old-fashioned, fete style games. Our Mini Meadow’s Golf Course and Play Area will also be open for children to enjoy.

The festival is mainly outdoor on the field to back of our rose garden with a marquee set up for a live music stage to entertain guests from 11am on both days. Bop away beside the main stage, kick back & relax amongst the straw bales or enjoy the music as you browse the stalls.

A raffle will be held raising money for our local chosen charity. At our 2021 festival, we raised an amazing £399.92 for Harp Homeless Charity in Southend. We always have a great selection of prizes ranging from Food & Drink Hampers to Homewares & Garden Products so make sure you buy your raffle tickets whilst you're there – You have to be in it to win it!

The garden centre & restaurant will be open as normal over the weekend.

Save the dates & we look forward to seeing you there.

A fun filled event for the whole family!
