Chester and North Wales Solicitors, Allington Hughes confirmed that they are again to be the head line sponsor of the Chester Food Drink & Lifestyle Festival for 2017.
The firm have been associated with the event as leading sponsor for the last 4 years and believe that this event, just like their own brand has an ever growing national profile.
Managing Director Alison Stace said. “Our firm and the Festival have flourished over the last 4 years and we are delighted to again be working with Stephen and his team to bring about an ever expanding festival of interactive family events. We enjoy being a part of this fabulous experience every Easter at Chester Racecourse.
Festival Organiser, Stephen Wundke was delighted to again be working with the team, “Allington Hughes have understood our message right from the start and they love to be involved in the food and drink industry with many of our small producers. We not only want to grow the event again in 2o17 for the benefit of our many visitors but also for Alison and her team who have shown such faith in us over the years. Its an exciting build up again.
The Festival had over 29,000 people attend this Easter and organisers believe that 2017 will see them push beyond the 30,000 mark. Mr Wundke says it’s been a great journey “Some ten years ago the hoteliers of Chester told us that everyone left Chester at Easter and that if we were going to do an event would we do it at Easter to give people a reason to come to the city. We did as they requested and now every hotel in Chester is full at Easter and our figures show that the event brings in over £3 million of economic benefit to the city. The Festival is now the largest event of its type that takes place anywhere in the UK at Easter and we have a waiting list of exhibitors who would like to come to Chester. We are very proud of how this event has matured and very proud to be associated with Allington Hughes.”
