As a community interest company this is a business with primarily social objectives whose surpluses are principally reinvested for that purpose in the business or in the community, rather than being driven by the need to maximise profit for shareholders and owners.
Over the years the festival has attracted the fantastic support from scores of celebrity and local chefs. They have come because they love what they do, and they are happy to be part of our celebration of great local British produce.
Behind the scenes there is also a a wealth of volunteer support that makes sure the event runs like clockwork.
We aim to keep the Festival fresh with fabulous new features yet keeping our roots with the local and national food community strong. We want Thame Food Festival to be a family occasion with plenty to keep grown ups and children happy – make it it the best it can be for family days out.
But we also won’t forget that this is primarily a Food Festival so we will keep the standards high and remain true to our ‘Supporting British Food’ ethos. Because what is a food festival without delicious food?
