The Broadstairs Easter Food Festival has a distinctly green theme this year with junior and adult planting sessions alongside hands-on craft and cookery workshops.

Children will be able to try their hands at winding willow, screen printing and rolling sushi.

Each year, the free-to-enter festival brings together almost 100 of the region’s best artisan food and drink producers. They offer an eclectic array of local and regional delicacies, seasoned with a peppering of workshops and demonstrations.

The festival’s Easter bonnets are going regal for 2024 with drop-in sessions of making paper crowns, suitable for even the youngest family member.

All the children’s sessions are free-to-attend.

Event director Jo Scott said: “As a not-for-profit company we continually look to raise funds. Our online draw offers the chance to win amazing prizes: stainless steel kitchenware, a gourmet foraging day, a stay in Broadstairs and supper in a harbourside restaurant.”
