Special guest announced

We are pleased to announce that Maggie Throup, Conservative MP for Erewash, will be opening the Ilkeston Food Fair on October 9th!

The event opens at 10am, and Maggie will be there to sample the delights this year’s exhibitors have to offer.

As well as this, we also have the highly talented Megan Kelsey and PIRATE RADIO performing throughout the day, our compere Mick Gee providing music and entertainment, as well as pony rides, bouncy castles, and face painting stalls!

Maggie held the Derbyshire constituency of Erewash in May 2015 for the Conservative Party with an increased majority. She first entered politics through her involvement with a community campaign to save an area of green belt from development, and has since gone on to lead a number of similar campaigns, most notably opposing the construction of the East Midlands HS2 Hub on green belt at Breaston.
