Huddersfield Virtual Food & Drink Festival- Business Opportunity

Huddersfield Live have been working with Kirklees Council, to help with the reopening and recovery of the district as we emerge from lockdown. They would love you to join them and help spread the word about how fabulous your business is and what delectable food and drink delights you can offer residents and visitors.

This is a great opportunity for those businesses in Kirklees who are not always able to join in the Food & Drink Festival, they are delivering this to you as a FREE opportunity to shout about YOUR business and increase your customer base.

If you would like to be considered for our festival, all they ask is that you meet the following criteria before filling in the application link:

Be based within Kirklees
Be an independent/local business – sorry NO national chains or franchises
Have a minimum 4 Star Food Hygiene Rating (if applicable)
To offer an incentive to customers. For example, a discount code, future visit voucher, free gift or whatever you feel will help drive footfall to YOUR business during the 4 days and into the future

Thursday 6th August - Sunday 9th August

Where & How:
The event will be hosted on their Huddersfield Food & Drink Festival Website running alongside all social media platforms

There will be 5 Aspects of the event:

The whole event will be as interactive as possible and Huddersfield Live will be promoting businesses throughout the event, so the more interactive you are the better.
