Breakfast is the most important meal of the day which is why Woking Food and Drink Festival has added an exciting new event to the start of the festival!
Inspiring Women in Food, is a celebratory breakfast delivered in partnership with the Borough’s dedicated business collective, Woking Works and its partners.
Taking place on the first day of the festival, Friday 31 August from 8am to 9.30am at the impressive WWF-UK The Living Planet Centre, the keynote address will be given by healthy eating entrepreneur Ella Mills, founder of the Deliciously Ella.

Dynamic debate with local food experts
Following Ella’s keynote address, the event will move on to an open panel discussion led by four ambitious local business women who have succeeded in the fast moving and increasingly competitive food industry.
