Glamis Castle hosts two day food festival this weekend

Updated: Jul 2

The upcoming Summer Festival follows the success of their sell-out Spring Food Festival this May, their first outdoor event in over 16 months.

The team at Glamis Castle are preparing to host a family-friendly Summer Festival on the grounds of the historic visitor attraction this weekend.


Set on the lawn in front of Glamis Castle on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th July, the festival will feature a dedicated food and drink area that showcases a wide range of local food, drink and craft businesses, all within the stunning castle grounds.



The event follows a hugely successful sell-out Spring Food Festival at the end of May. The Spring Festival was the first event held at the site in over 16 months and was cited as a major gain for local food and drink providers by the team.


Helen Buchanan, General Manager at Glamis Castle, said: “After the resounding success of the Spring Food Festival we are excited to be able to host the Summer Festival which has offered many businesses from the area another opportunity to showcase their products, from hand-made truffles to locally produced gin."


"It has been wonderful welcoming so many visitors to Glamis again and we are looking forward to seeing many more during our Summer Festival. Remember to book online to ensure your tickets!”


A mix of food, drink and craft companies will be present at the Festival including Baked by Belle, Crafty Connoisseur, The Littlest Herb Company, The Lobster Shop, Owen’s Angus Jams, hot food vendor Wild and Smoky, Tipsy Puddle Duck and Designs by Inez.


There will also be a number of familiar faces returning to Glamis after the success of the sold-out Spring Food Festival in May including Spice Harmony, Carnoustie Distillery and The Littlest Herb Company.



Heidi Bowman from The Littlest Herb Company, who make a range of delicious homemade jams and chutneys, is excited to be returning to Glamis after a successful and enjoyable day during May's Spring Food Festival. Heidi said:


“We loved our day at the Spring Food Festival. The atmosphere was so friendly and so many people wandered and lingered at the stalls…it felt so good to have some normality again! We jumped at the chance to return since it was such a positive experience and are really hoping to see other returning traders as well as more of our foodie customers as well. This time we are also hoping to manage some samples to do please just ask for a tasting spoon and we will let you know what’s available!”


Alongside the many foods and drink traders on offer, there will be outdoor food operators on-site, which will provide visitors options for a tasty lunch or snack. In addition, the Glamis Castle Kitchen, a stunning original Victorian kitchen experience, is currently hosting afternoon teas, an exciting lunch menu and a table d’hote offering, curated by the castle’s new executive chef, Kevin Hanlon.
