Leading local law firm gives its support to July's Hampshire Food Festival

Hampshire law firm, Eric Robinson Solicitors, is supporting local producers and businesses through its sponsorship of this year’s Hampshire Food Festival.

The award-winning Hampshire Food Festival is held every July and organised by Hampshire Fare. Since the first festival was held fifteen years ago it has grown from a weekend event to a month-long celebration of Hampshire’s food and farming.

The food festival involves local producers, farmers, growers and pub and restaurants owners from across Hampshire. It is an opportunity for people to discover the delicious food and drink being made locally and to see behind the scenes of our thriving local food scene. Events include farm and vineyard tours, pop-up restaurants, food tastings and courses and country shows.

Festival sponsors, Eric Robinson Solicitors is a well-established local law firm with six offices across Hampshire. Last year, the firm celebrated its Golden Anniversary and remains dedicated to its mission of ‘making law make sense’. Keen to put something into the local community the law firm was eager to take this opportunity to work alongside the prospering food group to ensure this year’s Hampshire Food Festival is the best yet.

Managing Partner at Eric Robinson Solicitors, Catherine Maxfield, spoke of their involvement in the festival, “There are lots of superb local food and drink specialists in the area which we are proud to support through the Hampshire Food Festival”.

Tracy Nash, Commercial Manager at Hampshire Fare commented, “We are delighted to have the support of the team at Eric Robinson Solicitors. Each year the Hampshire Food Festival gets bigger and better as the number of local producers and businesses involved grows. Hampshire is fast becoming recognised for its burgeoning local food and drink scene and the festival is a chance to celebrate this and show off what’s happening on our doorstep.”

This year’s 15th anniversary festival will be held from 1st July – 2nd August and shouldn’t be missed by any local food fans eager to try delicious food, meet producers, see chefs in action and tour vineyards and farms.
