The heat of India is coming to Cheshire.
Summer has finally arrived, and here to get us right in the spirit of this wave of beautiful weather is the Indian Summer Fest – a brand new festival set to grace Arley Hall this July. Promising to bring the flavours of the country to the North West this summer, the family-friendly festival (dogs included!) will be the perfect way to explore the popular cuisine, with tons of food, drink and entertainment to enjoy across the weekender.
Taking place on the 3rd and 4th July, guests will be invited to soak up the sun on the stunning grounds of the hall, as well as potter around numerous areas within the festival – each offering something new to explore.
Taste the flavours of Delhi and Mumbai on ‘Khanawala Street’, which will consist of seven fantastic food vendors serving up unique Indian street food. From kebabs and burgers to chocolates, curries and even pizzas – there’ll be plenty of Indian fusion grub to try, as well as a number of classic street-style dishes, too. So far, the likes of Zouk Tea Bar, YOURS, Gooey, and Foodwell have been confirmed, with more set to be revealed soon.
Each food partner will create a bespoke menu especially for the festival, so expect some really exciting creations from some of Manchester’s best restaurants on offer over the weekend. In addition to the food, Foodwell will be on hand with an uber-cool boho style bar, serving up champagnes and gin cocktails – each with an Indian twist.
Elsewhere at the festival, there’ll be plenty of entertainment to enjoy, including free Yoga classes, an Indian drummer band, Bollywood dancing and more – and kids will be able to let their hair down at the ‘Kidchella’ zone, which will feature a giant sandpit, fair rides, a donkey sanctuary, dance classes, and a number of other activities to get involved in.
Tickets for the festival are on sale now, costing just £10pp for the day. To find out more and book yours, head over to the website here.
