A number of the UK’s awarding-winning pie makers will be at the event selling their pies including past Supreme Champions of the British Pie Awards. PieFest will also include talks, tastings, demonstrations and workshops on how to make the perfect pie. There will also be a Pie Kitchen where visitors can eat hot pies – baked to perfection with mash, vegetables and a variety of accompaniments.

The Pie Theatre programme includes talks on How to Rate a Pie, a demonstration of hand raising a Melton Mowbray Pork Pie, a Pie Panel that will discuss your pie and pastry woes and queries, plus one idiot's attempt to find the perfect pie in 'A Life of Pies' and a guest appearance from Leicestershire-based Frances Quinn, winner of the Great British Bake Off in 2013.
