Special Events Programme
Indie-Go Resurrection & Maddog Stage, Peace Gardens

Community is central to everything we do at Sheffield Food Festival. As one of the only remaining free to enter Food Festivals and with this year’s festival taking place on a Bank Holiday weekend, we decided to launch our own Special Events for the evening time! These events are all free to attend AND give you the chance to win amazing prizes!

Please note that all children must be accompanied by an adult to take part in activities.

Special Events (All events start at 6pm)

Combining the classic game of bingo with the flamboyant performance of drag, this event promises to be a hilarious evening of entertainment! Hosted by Sheffield’s own, Emma Maezin and featuring:

– Engaging, interactive performances
– Games
– Songs
– A-Maezin Prizes, like tickets to THE GREAT ESCAPE GAME in Sheffield!

Best of all – it’s free! Grab yourself a drink and dinner with our traders, sit back, and get ready for a rip-roaring Friday night of entertainment.


Emma Maezin is Sheffield’s very own upcoming drag sensation with a passion for partying. Expect live vocals, high energy hits and shenanigans and an amazing night where this queen goes.
