Fancy some tasty treats? Head on down to the Oundle Food Festival, a celebration of all that’s excellent in English food on Saturday July 21!

There’ll be several activities taking place during the festival, the heart of which is the street market. Around 50 various stalls displaying fancy foods will be lined up ready for you to taste.

Cookery demonstrations will also be taking place, held by Times columnist, Joanna Weinberg.

Children’s activities, hosted by The Eden Project, will be running to get children involved with both growing and cooking. This will demonstrate how easy it is to grow your own tasty veggies.

The big food debate at 2.30pm, chaired by BBC Presenter Sue MacGregor, gives you the chance to ask your questions such as “Is local always best?”, helping you make the right choices when buying.

In the week before the Food Festival, from Saturday July 14-22, there’ll be music and entertainment as part of the town’s Fringe Festival. The street theatre and Fringe Festival team will also once again hold performances to give the Food Festival street market a carnival atmosphere, for more details, visit www.oundlefringe.co.uk.

It’s set to be a real treat for the whole family you can’t afford to miss! For more information please visit www.oundlefoodfestival.co.uk.
