Watford BID is hosting its first Food & Drink Week between Monday 25th September – Sunday 1st October 2017.

What is it?

Watford Food & Drink Week is an event where we will be actively promoting Watford restaurants, bars, café’s, pubs and food retailers to encourage visitors to come into the town centre and enjoy a taste of Watford. This would be the first event of this kind in Watford town centre and would become a yearly event. The dates chosen ties in with national ‘British Food Fortnight’ where food & drink will be highlight in the national press.
