Shaftesbury’s Food Festival Returns With Two New Joint Chairmen

Shaftesbury’s Food Festival, which incorporates the much-loved cheese races up Gold Hill, will return on Sunday 8th May 2022.

Carolyn Hopkins and James Delport-King

The event has two new chairmen, both known locally for their love of quality local produce. The Truckle Truck owner Carolyn Hopkins will work in partnership with co-owner of Seasons Café, James Delport-King. The pair will join longstanding organiser James Thrift and gym owner Colin Fricker on the committee.

The new recruits share their ambitions for next year’s event.
