We are aware that this event has since been cancelled. If anything changes we will update this page accordingly.

Lancaster Food and Drink Festival is an excellent way to spend a long bank holiday weekend. Starting on Friday 6th May until Monday 8th May, the food and drink festival is always an extremely popular event with both locals and University Students.

Hosted at Lancaster Leisure Park, it should only be a short journey from your off-campus accommodation. This location is perfect as it is located right next to Lancaster Brewery, one of the most popular spots in Lancaster. It’s also incredibly easy to get to, just a quick bus journey up to the top of Lancaster town centre, or a short walk from your student accommodation.

Lancaster Brewery

Lancaster Brewery is a multi-award-winning regional brewer of fantastic beers in the northwest of England. All their beers are brewed on-site, and it has a fantastic reputation throughout all of Lancaster. The top four most popular beers that will be available during the festival are the Lancaster Blonde, Amber, Red and Black. The inside of the brewery or ‘the tap house’ is very large, allowing lots of room for the public to enjoy plenty of the food and drinks on offer! Trust us- the food and drink festival is not an event to miss out on for Lancaster University students!

If beer is not really your ideal tipple, don’t worry- there are plenty of other drink options available to suit everyone’s preferences. Plus, plenty of alcohol-free choices!

Food On Offer

Visiting the festival for a sample of the food/dessert stalls is a must for all the foodies out there. Lancaster leisure park is hosting a wide selection of different food and drink options containing the best food and drink from the local Lancaster area and beyond. If you’re like a lot of people and need to try something before you buy it, then you’re in luck. The majority of stalls allow free samples, so you know exactly what you’ll be spending your money on, which as students, is ideal. You’ll be able to enjoy both hot and cold street food, cheeses, relishes and dips, cakes, meats, spirits, and wines to take back to your student home with you! Why not treat yourself to a trip out from your Lancaster student accommodation and enjoy some sweet treats with your housemates?

This event is also completely accessible, with accessible toilets, blue badge parking and the entire festival being on one level, with no steps. Visiting the festival is the perfect excuse to get out of your Lancaster student accommodation and spend the day enjoying all the food and drinks on offer.

The Countrystyle Farmshop

Countrystyle Meats always delivers top-quality produce. They stock a large number of fresh quality items, such as fresh meats, fruits, vegetables, frozen foods, cakes, biscuits, condiments, and household staples. As well as homemade sweet and savoury pies, quiches, ready meals, and cooked meats. They really do have a fantastic selection of goods available. Visiting the farm shop whilst at the festival is a great opportunity to pick up a few extra bits to take back to your student home.

Whatever you decide to do during the May bank holiday weekend, we at Escape Campus hope you have a lovely time. And if you decide to visit, we hope you enjoy all the excellent foods and drinks of the festival!
