From the 22 applications for Operation Footfall support to revitalise town centres, Warwickshire County Council has awarded funding to three new food festivals.
Alcester & Forest of Arden Autumn Food Festival – as with the Spring festival, the Autumn Food Festival on Saturday 19 October will have over 100 exhibitors displaying a delicious and unusual array of foods and beverages, with competitions and surprises also added to the mix http://alcesterfoodfestival.org.uk
Rugby Food and Drink Festival, with a real ale trail – a weekend of food and drink in Rugby town centre, due to take place in the Autumn.
Warwick Food and Film Festival – launching in the Summer, follow #warwickrocks for updates on this new event.
These festivals are a great way to put Warwickshire on the culinary map and I’m looking forward to visiting all of them.
