Award-winning artisan food and specialist drink producers from around Lancashire are bringing their wares to Penwortham to help raise funds for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.Advertisement
Co-organiser and exhibitor Gillian Bartlett, who lost her close friend and business partner to cancer last year, said: “We’re really excited to be bringing this event to South Ribble.
“We held our inaugural Rosemere Cancer Foundation Food and Drink Fair in the Ribble Valley last year at the iconic Inn at Whitewell, where my fellow organiser, Ian Crowther, is pastry chef. We raised more than £1,000 for the charity.
“As we have a fantastically exciting array of award-winning producers joining us again this year, we’re hopeful that past and new visitors will come along, making the fair even more successful.”
Among the exhibitors taking part is Bowland Snails from Inglewhite, a company that specialises in producing snails for the table and supplies a host of top restaurants nationwide.
Other exhibitors will be offering bakes, cakes, chocolates, marinades, meats, coffees, crepes, cheeses, pizzas, wines and gins. There will also be demonstrations of how to mix the perfect cocktail.

The fair will take place on Sunday 6 October from 11am to 4pm at St Theresa’s Parish Centre.
Entry is £1, and all money taken on the door, in producers’ pitch fees, money raised by a raffle and a percentage of sales will go to Rosemere.
The charity will use the money to bring world class cancer treatments and services to cancer patients from throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria.
