Tom Shepherd

Upstairs by Tom Shepherd was awarded a Michelin Star just four months after opening. In 2023, Tom represented the Central Region on the BBC’s Great British Menu. He went on to win the main course round and cooked at the Banquet where he served his infamous take on Desperate Dan’s Cow Pie.
We can’t wait to see what Tom will be cooking on the day and would like to personally thank Tom for volunteering his time and efforts to taking part to fundraise for this amazing cause.

Head Chef at Restaurant Pine

Ian Waller

Those who have dined at Restaurant Pine over the last 2 and a half years will know what an incredible talent Ian is. He is a testament to Pine’s success and we are thrilled that he is taking part and helping us plan this event.

When discussing the initial plan for the festival, Ian asked if we could choose Cancer Research to fundraise for, a charity close to his heart.
Humongous thank you Ian! We look forward to enjoying your famous beetroot and Doddington's Cheddar cheddar dish.
