Our Great British Food Festival at Borde Hill will be going ahead this weekend.

Along with the rest of the country, the whole team at the Great British Food Festival remains deeply saddened about the death of Her Majesty the Queen. We have considered at length, whether we should postpone our event this weekend, as a mark of respect to Her Majesty. No doubt, there will be some people who feel that we should have done so. However, after careful thought, we have decided (in conjunction with our venue partners) to proceed. We strive always to ensure that our events are occasions when family and friends can come together to spend some happy, quality time with one another. And on balance, our view is that allowing the event to continue and hopefully therefore providing a space for people to do so, is the right thing to do. This also enables us to support the many independent producers and contractors, who are reliant upon events taking place to earn a living.

Our team’s sincere condolences remain with Her Majesty the Queen’s family and we pay tribute to Her Majesty’s unfaltering dedication and service throughout her Reign.

Out of respect for the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we will be holding a one-minute silence at our Great British Food Festival this weekend. The silence on Sunday the 18th of September will be led by The High Sheriff of West Sussex, and will take place at 11:00 am, providing an opportunity for our visitors to come together and pay tribute to our late Queen.

Alongside the scheduled one minute silence, we hope that this event allows people to celebrate our magnificent Queen, reflect on her reign and offer support for one and other during this emotional time.
