Pembrokeshire Food Festival at Bluestone
Taste buds will be teased next month when producers and suppliers of some of West Wales’ finest food and produce come together for the Pembrokeshire Food Festival.
The festival, with free entry, takes place at The Pavilion at Bluestone National Park Resort, near Narberth, on Tuesday, 10th and Wednesday, 11th September and will be a “foodies” heaven.
An abundance of local produce and beverages will be on display and sale, along with cookery demonstrations and samples.
“West Wales has so much to offer when it comes to food and drink and we’re extremely proud to be able to source produce and ingredients from our community wherever we can at Bluestone,” said Steve Batty, Head of Food and Beverage at Bluestone.
“The Pembrokeshire Food Festival is a great way to celebrate and showcase the wide range of fine food and produce from the region and to let visitors sample, take home and even go away with new cooking ideas using local produce.”
Exhibitors will be on hand to talk about their produce and to answer any questions. A gastro restaurant will also be providing demonstrations cooked by Bluestone’s very own head chefs, along with students from Pembrokeshire College.
The Pembrokeshire Food Festival takes place at The Pavilion at Bluestone between 10.30am and 4.30pm with free entry.

Notes to the Editor
Bluestone is a luxury short-break holiday destination situated in the spectacular Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in West Wales with a strong sustainable and environmental ethos.
Opened in July 2008, Bluestone sits within 500 acres of countryside and woods near Narberth and close to the coastal town of Tenby. It comprises nearly 300 luxury timber lodges, cottages and studio apartments surrounding a private village.
Among its attractions are the Blue Lagoon water park and Adventure Centre, which are open to day visitors, the award-winning Well Spa and its thermal and treatment rooms, the Steep Ravine with high ropes and zip wire and the Tournamnent Field, with everything from a giant catapult to archery and crossbow action.
Bluestone offers a wide range of activities for all ages and abilities, including archery, laser clay-shooting, bushcraft, a high ropes course, Woodland Warriors laser combat game, and a breathtaking nature trail.
Environmental responsibility is central to the Bluestone ethos and shapes every aspect of it. From the use of natural, sustainable materials wherever possible, to solar-heated water in the lodges, and a unique biomass energy centre which provides carbon-neutral heat for Blue Lagoon and the Adventure Centre.
In 2012 and 2013, Bluestone was accredited with Level Five of the prestigious Welsh Government-backed Green Dragon Award for its environmental work on a day-to-day basis.
Bluestone has won numerous national and regional environmental and sustainable awards, including the coveted Management for Resource Efficiency Premier Award in the Business Commitment to the Environment Awards. It has also been awarded nationally and regionally in the Business in the Community’s Awards for Excellence.
In July 2012 Bluestone was awarded the British Venture Capital Association’s UK Community and Environmental Award in London.
Bluestone currently employs over 500 people and continues to recruit. The company is committed to recruiting local people to fill its vacancies, as far as possible.
