The Great British Festival of Pies returns for a second year, selling some of the Award Winning Pies from the British Pie Awards


Melton Promotions is delighted to invite you to the GREAT BRITISH FESTIVAL OF PIES event on Saturday 11th March 2017 in Melton Mowbray Market Place.

The event will round off the fantastic British Pie Week and the prestigious British Pie Awards.

The British Pie Awards, organised by the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association, is one of the town’s most prestigious annual events attracting local, regional and national media attention. The British Pie Awards have become an institution for pastry-connoisseurs country-wide. The annual event sees hundreds of pie-makers gather for a celebration and competition of this British culinary favourite. Being held this year at PERA in Melton Mowbray with selection of the most knowledgeable figures in the industry on-hand presiding over the day’s proceedings.

The Awards themselves have become an excellent means for Producers to receive recognition and accreditation for their Pies but until now members of the public have had little opportunity to become involved other than view the spectacle of pies being judged (let alone purchase some of the excellent examples on display).

Melton Promotions would like to change this by enabling the public to try, taste and buy pies by creating an opportunity to buy a potential Award Winning Pie. 

The event will be held in the historic Market Place of Melton town centre between 10.00am and 3.00pm. There will be music and street entertainment throughout the day and the Festival site will be clearly distinguished with the truly British red, white and blue theme.

There will be local crafted ales on hand to enable visitors to enjoy a  ‘pie & pint’ during the event as well as purchasing pies to take home.
