What an entertaining festival

IF you are looking for a weekend of gastronomic delights and great entertainment, get to the Noosa International Food and Wine Festival from May 17-20.

A general admission ticket gains entry to the wonderful culinary events of the festival and live concerts featuring some of Australia's top musical performers.

The festival starts on May 17 with The Cook, The Chef and The Orchestra Gala Concert featuring Maggie Beer and Simon Bryant.

Their cooking show will be accompanied by the Queensland Virtuosi Orchestra, conducted by musical funnyman Guy Noble, with queen of the flute Jane Rutter.

Concert tickets are $55 for adults and $20 for children under 13.

On Friday, May 18, the welcome party and concert will feature ARIA award winners Anthony Callea and Jessica Mauboy (pictured).

Local band PocketLove will warm up the audience.

Tickets are $65 for adults (including two food/wine tickets) and $20 for children under 13.

The festival continues to deliver world-class entertainment on both Saturday and Sunday.

The Fabulous Singlettes will get the ball rolling on Saturday, May 19, with their harmonies and camp take on the hits of the '60s and '70s.

Then Martini Club will have the crowd dancing with their jazzy Latino dance music.

The festival ends with a performance by electro-pop group Sneaky Sound System featuring Miss Connie and Black Angus who will be preceded by X Factor favourites, the talented Audio Vixen.

General admission tickets for both Saturday and Sunday include not only the concerts, but also celebrity cooking chef demonstrations (including international chefs from the S. Pelligrino Best Restaurants in the World list), admission to exhibitions in the grand marquee as well as forums and debates.

Tickets are $65 for adults (including two food/wine tickets) and $20 for children under 13.
