Foot Stompin’ Supper

[bt_section][bt_row][bt_column width=”1/1″][bt_header superheadline=”Saturday 10th June 7:30pm” headline=”Foot Stompin’ Supper” headline_size=”extralarge” dash=”bottom” subheadline=”” el_class=”” el_style=””][/bt_header][bt_text]

Join us for an evening of music, food, drink and frivolity in the Crail Community Hall on Saturday 10th June at 7:30pm at our Foot Stompin’ Supper.

After some wine on arrival, the evening begins with a meal; a hearty bowl of soup accompanied by artisan bread from Barnett’s Bakery. We follow that up with a chilli pot from the local Crail butchers, and pulled pork served with salad, slaw and wee potatoes. All finished with ice cream from award-winning Jannettas Gelateria.

Dinner is worked off on the dancefloor, with music from local rhythm and blues band The Taysliders. Other entertainment includes a Tasting Quiz with fabulous foodie prizes to be won.

Tickets cost £20 for the evening and include your meal. So book your place at the table for the Crail Food Festival Foot Stompin’ Supper.

The 7th annual Crail Food Festival has another exciting programme of children’s activities to make sure everyone has a fun-filled weekend.

[/bt_text][/bt_column][/bt_row][bt_row][bt_column width=”1/1″][bt_header superheadline=”Marine Hotel” headline=”Saturday & Sunday” headline_size=”medium” dash=”bottom” subheadline=”” el_class=”” el_style=””][/bt_header][bt_text]

There is plenty to entertain younger visitors to the Crail Food Festival at the Marine Hotel.

A family cafe from Nibbles ‘n’ Giggles which will have indoor and outdoor seating (weather permitting.) Children will be able to choose their own picnic lunch box to enjoy.

The team from Forgan’s will be on face painting duty, and there will be a special bookstore with children’s stories from through the ages.

Throughout the whole weekend there will be the exciting children’s ceilidh, along with traditional Scottish stories from Hamespun Tales – all taking place at the Marine Hotel.

Through the village there will be a treasure trail to encourage curious minds to explore the festival. Visit the stalls to find the hidden letters and discover the mystery word! The treasure trail will be available to pick up from selected venues across the festival.

Sunday is the return of the now infamous Harbour Lunch.

To complement the lunch we have a list of fun and games for the kids from the Crail Food Festival Children’s Champion.

Don’t worry about the sand and take part in the scavenger hunt on the beach. There will be a table with arts and crafts, parachute games and of course a sandcastle competition.

Crail Food Festival 2017 promises to be a fun-filled weekend for the whole family!
