Scrumptious Food Festivals is an events company which specialises in curating boutique food festivals. It is run by Lotte Duncan and Jon Hackett.

Jon worked for over fifteen years at Ogilvy, where he headed up the TV Facilities and production department – he then turned freelance cameraman specialising in shooting food. Prior to that he worked as an TV and Film Editor.

Lotte has worked in many aspects of the food industry for forty years and is an experienced chef, broadcaster, food judge and food writer. She works closely with our food producers and has judged for Great Taste Awards for the last 8 years.

Over the last 5 years Scrumptious Food Festivals has organised and run the Bradford on Avon Food and Drink Festival. Established within the Food Festival diary it has been a finalist three times in the Bath Life Awards.

Making all of the events a fabulous fun day out for friends and family has always been at its core, alongside a celebration of delicious food that is both local and national.

Introducing exciting features every year and keeping festivals fresh is integral to their success, as well as all the support the festival offers to its stall holders.

Lotte and Jon also run Thame Food Festival in Oxfordshire and now Scrumptious Bluewater in Kent.

We are as much about the team as we are about the events we run. We work closely with only the best contractors and suppliers – have been for almost 10 years. Our onsite events team are hand picked for being….well – the best. Helpful, courteous and hard working. Everything with a smile! 


My name is Winnie.

I am the office dog and actually I think I’m the most important member of the team.

I can often be found shredding documents – sometimes they are the ones that should have been filed.

My hobbies are chasing squirrels – where do they go? I never find them. Finding the muddiest puddle and taking ALL of my toys out and leaving them scattered about the house.

Luckily for Lotte and Jon, I am always available for a de-stress head tickle and I’m great company to have around. They love me.
