Having worked at the event’s past seven instalments, Ashgrove employee Jess Wall is somewhat of a Festivale veteran.

Ashgrove was one of more than 80 stalls to set up shop in City Park last weekend as the festival celebrated its 30th anniversary.

Miss Wall said a large number of festival goers had swung by the Ashgrove stall to try out some of the business’s new cheddar and havarti cheeses. 

“(People just) grab a glass of wine, cider, or beer in one hand and some cheese in the other and everyone's set to go,” Miss Wall said. 

“Each year is new and different (at Festivale), there's always something new to look forward to, all the stalls evolve and change so it’s nice to see new products and new ventures.”
