Fingers crossed as excitement builds towards Alcester Food Festival

Harry Leach 30th Sep, 2018

ORGANISERS of Alcester Food Festival are hoping people will bring their appetites with them to this year’s autumn event and make it the most popular yet.

On October 20, there will be a wide-range of delicious food stalls set up across the historic town centre to make up for last year’s festival which was cancelled due to poor weather.

Organiser Alison Brown said: “I just hope it’s not raining because we had such a fantastic time at the May event and we drew in one of the biggest crowds we’ve ever had.”

The Alcester Food Festival, which has been running for the best part of a decade, is well-known for selling high quality goods and tasty treats.

“This year visitors can expect to see a lots of different meats, sweet food, Christmas turkeys and yummy cakes,” said Alison.

“There will be a lot of familiar faces but also some new ones.”

Attractions include ‘Garlic Farm’ from the Isle of Wight, which will look to get taste buds sizzling with its all-garlic-menu.

A company called ‘Reusable’ will also be making their appearance for the first time, selling recycled quirky cups and straws.

Local ales, ciders, beers and spirits will be on sale in the festival which runs across the High Street, Church Street and Henley Street.

Prizes will be given out for the best food and drink, as well as for the person who has travelled the furthest to be at the festival.

Last year an Australian man won a cook book for being the person who had the longest journey.

The event kicks off at 9am and finishes at 5pm.
