Taste Cumbria Food Festival 2013 has been branded a huge success with over 20,000 people visiting Cockermouth, Cumbria, for the event. Cumbria Marquees were proud to be involved in setting up and assisting with various food and drink demonstration marquees and exhibitions.

We set up the marquee for Jennings Brewery where customers could sample various local ales. There was also a fully lined exhibition demonstration area which we set up.  We were responsible for setting up the marquee for one of the UK’s most accomplished and well respected chefs; Simon Rogan. For our Simon Rogan marquee one review was quoted as saying, “one of the highlights of the Taste Cumbria Food Festival 2013 was the Simon Rogan Pop Up, which seated 240 people over the days and was definitely a huge talking point of the festival.” Outside Cockermouth’s Trout Hotel, we put up their marquee and also set up a marquee for a children’s crèche.

It was all happening at the Taste Cumbria Food Festival 2013 and we had to make sure all of the marquees were built to the highest of standard – especially when the visitors came in their thousands. It was great success and a brilliant weekend which we thoroughly enjoyed being part of.

We look forward to going back to the festival in 2014!
