"Come Dine With Us" Tickets go on sale

"You are invited to a dinner party for six 

on Saturday March 12th 2016"

 

 Some 2015 guests looking forward to their meal

 

‘But where and who with?’ we hear you ask. 


 That is the surprise!

A few days before the event you will be given the venue
 for your evening out, which will be a private home in Devizes.
You will meet your fellow guests on the night.

 You will be served a welcome drink and a delicious home cooked dinner.
(Please bring your own drink to accompany the meal.)

Unlike the TV programme the hosts don't provide entertainment and there's no scoring. These dinners are simply a great opportunity to enjoy a splendid meal and meet new friends.

Tickets are £20 each, and are sold in ones or twos to ensure you mix with people you have not met before. You don't have to be a conventional couple, bring a friend or relation! Single people are most welcome too – in previous years many guests have come on their own and you will be sure to have other people to talk to. 

At time of booking, you will be able to tell us about any dietary preferences and restrictions which we will do our very best to accommodate.

Festival Market to go ahead as planned

There were reports in local papers before Christmas suggesting that there was some doubt about whether the Festival Market would be able to go ahead this year after Wiltshire Council belatedly notified us that they wanted to impose a sizeable charge for use of the Devizes Market Place.

Busy stalls last year in Devizes Beautiful Market Place

This issue has now been resolved and the Festival Committee can now confirm that 

The Grand Market on May 14th 2016 
will definitely go ahead as planned. 

So if you want to be a part of the biggest food event in Devizes,
 get your booking in as soon as possible.
Spaces are limited and going fast!
