There are already around 32 companies hosting stalls at the event, including, Autumn Brewing co., Crabbies, Tesco and Warburtons. However, the number of companies attending the event continues to grow as more and more wish to share their products and knowledge with the community.
Annette continued: “As well as dietetics clinics and specialist talks from experts in the field of coeliac disease, there will also be cookery demonstrations taking place throughout the day.”
One of the talks will be held by leading gastroenterologist, NHS consultant and University of Sheffield professor, David Sanders. Not only is Professor Sanders a medical doctor and researcher but also works closely with the charity as its current council chair.
In addition to the stalls and events held at the festival, there will also be the charities very first Coeliac UK hub where people can find out about the Coeliac UK services and activities for the event goers to take part in.
To end off the day, there will also be a free goodie bag handed out to ticket holders.
