Linford Eats food festival returns in June

Posted 6th June 2024

Suitable for family and friends of all ages (including well-behaved dogs on leads), visitors can enjoy the grounds of Great Linford Manor Park at Linford Eats on Thursday 13th June. From 4pm until 8pm there’ll be a feast of food, drink, dessert, music, local traders, kids entertainment, face painting and a land train!

Linford Eats was launched in 2021 by The Parks Trust, the charity caring for the city’s parkland, as part of celebrations of the extensive improvements of Great Linford Manor Park. Now, they’re handing over the reins (or recipe) to the team behind Cranfield Market, known as Social Society Events.

The team organising this year’s event say “we are thrilled to add Linford Eats to our events calendar. We are passionate about events that are family friendly, inclusive and cater to a wide range of needs such as dietary requirements. We look forward to welcoming residents to a sensational summer fiesta at Great Linford Manor Park.”

Julie Dawes, Events & Community Engagement Manager for The Parks Trust said, “It’s been a delight to deliver the ever-popular Linford Eats in recent years, and we’re very excited to see it continue to grow with the fantastic new organisers”.

Linford Eats remains a free-to-attend way for the whole family to spend time together outdoors, and visitors are encouraged to bring their own picnic blankets and chairs.

Visitors will be able to enjoy a variety of street food such as Safs Kitchen, Fungs and Plant Bass’d. Drinks from a double decker bus bar and ice cream milkshakes alongside a wide range of desserts. New to Linford Eats will be a fabulous handmade dog treats stall as well as award winning locally made cheese and so much more.
