Eat, drink and relax in our chilled out Piazza area

The Piazza at Nottingham Food Festival is that special area where you can relax and eat, choosing from a wide range of tastes and cultures.  Compliment that with a glass of wine, real ale or maybe even champagne, enjoy the live music and take in the atmosphere.

There’s plenty of seating, both outside and undercover in the marquees, and a chance to chill and soak in the atmosphere and live music, while enjoying some of the amazing food on offer; food from all over the world – or local produce from the Nottingham area.
