Published: 14th September 2021

Food, music and entertainment in the heart of Solihull

Solihull’s Food & Drink Festival is returning this September, and it will be headlined by one of the nation’s favourite chefs, Ainsley Harriott along with other star-studded chefs.

Organised by Solihull BID and supported by RR Events, the FREE festival will run on Friday 24th until Sunday 26th September.  The event will be a food lovers paradise with over 80 food and drink traders in Mell Square, Mill Lane and Solihull High Street - which is a great place to get to by bus!

Food lovers paradise

There will be lots of fun filled food activities for you to enjoy - Demo kitchens and a taster tent full of great food, watch headliner Ainsley Harriot cook up a storm before signing copies of his new cookbook in Touchwood, also meet other great cooks during the weekend including Glynn Purnell and Laura Adlington a finalist on Great British Bake Off 2020.

Don’t forget to pick up a restaurant voucher booklet, which will have great discounts for local Solihull restaurants for when you fancy stopping for a bite to eat (if you haven’t filled yourself up on tasters!)


Get your festival on and be treated to some toe-tapping tunes. With the likes of Rats In The Kitchen, Badness, Ricky Cool and the In Crowd and One Love performing, you will be singing and dancing all weekend. In the new Rum and Reggae zone, Reggae and ska will be looking after you with some tune-tastic reggae beats.

For the kids - big or little

There will be roaming entertainment across the town centre and inside Touchwood, which includes dinosaurs who are looking to make Solihull their new home. Don’t forget all the tasty testers and treats that your little ones and the whole family can enjoy when wandering around the festival!
