Another packed Slow Food Festival!
The ever-popular Aylsham food festival organised by Slow Food Aylsham, returns in October with a packed weekend of old favourites and family entertainment.
Alongside regular features like the Country Market, Farmers’ Market and Slow Brunch will be the musical act Banana Ukulele Band and magician and children's entertainer, Robbie James.
The festival will be from Friday 5th to Sunday 7th October.
However, it kicks off a week earlier with a ‘fringe taster’ — Rosie With Cider, on Friday 28 September at the town hall. Rosie Warren and her dad David, from Aylsham, demonstrate the art of cider-making. Samples will be available. Starts 6.30pm. Tickets £1 at the door.
The festival proper starts on Friday morning (5 October) with the weekly Country Market in the town hall where you can sample a wide range of home-made products.
Friday night and it’s An Evening with Richard Hughes at Aylsham High School — the renowned Norfolk chef, proprietor of The Assembly House and the Richard Hughes Cookery School, will talk about his 40 years in the business . This will be followed by a beef and ale pie supper. Ticket prices to be confirmed.
Saturday morning, the Banana Ukulele Band will entertain visitors to the regular Farmers’ Market and inside the town hall where there will be a variety of attractions for both adults and children.
The annual wine tasting evening takes place at the Heritage Centre Saturday, 7pm. £17 per person.
