Our time at The 2017 Yorkshire Dales Food & Drink Festival

As the official Media Team, we were lucky enough to get a weekend backstage pass to all things food and drink, and we were definitely in for a treat. We love Skipton, the home to this annual festival, as it pretty much epitomises what Yorkshire is all about.

2016’s event was absolutely fabulous, so we were only expecting this year's to match or better that. After working on the marketing for the event all year, it was amazing to see everything we’d been talking about on social media come to life in person.

Whilst sipping on some of the region's best beers, tucking into some belting burgers and picking out some other tasty treats to take home, we had an absolute blast, but besides eating and drinking, what else did we get up to?

Over the course of the weekend, Beckie was in charge of the festival’s social media platforms. The creative content was made up of key event information, live updates, exhibitor features and quick responses to all types of visitor communications, making sure the pages were kept up to date and exciting for everyone attending!

Josh captured new video footage of the whole weekend to produce a new promo video for the 2018 event, whilst Elliot went around snapping the yummy food, fantastic demos and smiling faces.

We also interviewed both celebrity chefs, James Martin and John Torode, and a selection of fabulous exhibitors who were all so passionate about what they do right here in Yorkshire.

Planning is currently underway for 2018 already, and oh boy is it going to be a good one!

It was a fantastic weekend away and we cannot wait for next year already! ☺️
