Food & Drink at EIHF 2023

We are pleased to announce the following arrangements below for food and drink at the EIHF 2023.

We know it’s important to keep you fuelled during the festival and we appreciate Easter is a busy time in local restaurants so we are very happy to tell you that this year we have evening meals available.

**To help our caterers plan effectively, please book your evening meal in advance.**

Eating together is a wonderful way to socialise with friends (both old and new), tutors and performers at the EIHF so we do hope you’ll join us!
