About the Event

Shropshire's Free-From and Allergy-Free Show


Frestival takes place on the West Midlands Showground - a 52 acre site in Shrewsbury, the county town of Shropshire. Take a look at our 2019 map to get a flavour of the event - more details about 2020 will be announced very soon!

Frestival is an opportunity for people to gain information about free-from - as a result of allergies, conditions and intolerances and give visitors the chance to learn more about coping in their day to day lives with chefs cooking free-from recipes on stage and speakers talking about their own experiences and how they can help.

The event also showcases ‘Free From’ products - whether that be food, drink cosmetics or clothing, as well as being able to grab a drink from the bar and a bite to eat without worrying about what hidden ingredients there are!

You will be able to chat to 'free-from' producers and exhibitors, listen to speakers and watch chefs in action.
