Food and Drink Festival gives girl taste for theatre

November 3, 2010 by  

Not only did the Nantwich Food and Drink Festival in September afford over 30,000 visitors and families in the area a great trip out for the weekend but for one lucky little girl, after winning a competition at the festival, it has given her the first taste of the theatre.

The organisers of the Nantwich Food and Drink Festival during the last weekend in September put on a Yabba Dabber Blue Cheese Trail competition in conjunction with Joseph Heler, the cheese-makers, which saw visitors at the festival follow a trail around the various attractions around the area. This also coincided with the cheese-makers’ launch of their Yabba Dabber Blue cheese. Companies offering printing services in Crewe were enlisted to produce lots of blue footprint floor vinyl posters which were then distributed around the town taking the visitors to various attractions. The organisers wanted to engage visitors in an entertaining way. Posters were also printed with blue footprints and displayed in local shops during the festival period.

Children had to correctly count the number of posters displayed in the area and one lucky 6 year old, Hannah Booth, has won her first trip to the pantomime at the Lyceum Theatre in Crewe. Hannah was the eventual winner drawn from 50 correct entrants and was presented with her winning tickets by the organiser of the Food and Drink Festival, Keith Cafferty. Hannah’s mum noted that Hannah was particularly thrilled to win the prize as she is a big fan of dancing and theatre shows.
