Stewarts Garden Centre in Christchurch to host Grill Fest on 29th _ 30th June!

Stewarts Garden Centre in Christchurch is getting set to host its inaugural ‘Grill Fest’, an opportunity to level up your outdoor cooking skills with guidance from the BBQ and pizza oven professionals, whilst enjoying some delectable samples from the outdoor cooking brands and many local food and drink companies!


The festival will take place on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June, 11–4pm, in the garden centre’s back yard event space, and promises to be a fun-packed day of game-changing cooking methods, live music from local bands and musicians, plenty of free samples of sizzling grilled food, delicious drinks, mouth-watering pizzas and feasts cooked on firebowls!


There will be hay bales to lounge on and an atmospheric stretch tent to house the band and bar. The bar will boast a plethora of local drink brands to sample and purchase, including delicious cocktails made by Southbourne based CONKER Distillery, local brews from Hampshire based Pig Beer and Powder Monkey Brewing Co and Purbeck Cider.

Marketing Manager Amy Stewart advised, “We are really excited to be launching our Grill Fest and are urging everyone to come along with friends and family to enjoy a superb afternoon out, live music and the many mouth-watering options that will be on offer.

“There will be live cooking demonstrations and a chance to ‘try before you buy’ on some of the current, hottest outdoors brands such as Christchurch based Gozney pizza ovens, and Ooni, Kadai, Weber, Traeger, YETI and more! 


“If you’re wondering which is the perfect pizza oven for you, or looking to move from gas to smoky wood pellet BBQing, Grill Fest is a brilliant opportunity to get involved in the products that you’re considering buying and seeing and understanding first-hand how to maximise their potential with an amazing range of cooking accessories.


“There will be exclusive offers on the day including a free drink if you buy a YETI cup or bottle. There’s also £20 back for a £100 spend and £40 back with a £200 spend on outdoor cooking products and YETI*.


“We will be running a raffle in aid of our charity of the year, Lewis-Manning Hospice Care, with some fabulous opportunities to win YETI gear, like their famous coolboxes, drinkwear and caps as well as Lafuma chairs and more.


“An event not to be missed this summer with something for everyone, including face painting for the kids and an ice cream stall, we would really love you to come along for this fun afternoon out.”
