The event was a great opporunity to learn all the skills to become the ultimate host this Christmas at the 12 Top Tip festive masterclasses. It was fun to get merry with Craft Beer, Wine and Champagne masterclasses in the Drinks Theatre, discovering new favourite tipples at Gin Alley and browsing for Christmas gifts in the artisan market.

It’s kid friendly too at the Elf’s Cookery School and you can taste flavours of the world at Street Food Avenue or indulge in award-winning treats at Pudding Hall. There was even the chance to enjoy Christmas carols and music from Scotland’s most exciting unsigned bands on the Live Music Stage.

With a VIP area, a vintage tea room and a Champagne Ski Bar, the Foodies Festival was a great place to kick off the festive season.

The next one will be the summer festival in Edinburgh in August.
