Free family day out at first food festival

Reepham will be filled with the smell of sizzling sausages, delicious drinks and culinary creations at the inaugural Reepham Food Festival on Sunday 28 May.

The town is being transformed for a free family day out to showcase the wares of producers in and around Reepham. The Market Place will feature a wide range of local organisations and businesses with food stalls, picnic stalls and cookery demonstrations.
Organised by Reepham & District Rotary Club, the Food Festival will also promote food and farming; Reepham High School and Reepham Primary School are working hard to produce displays, demonstrations and competitions.
The evening prior to the festival will feature a cocktail and canape party in the market square.
On the Sunday morning Diane’s Pantry will be serving breakfast (sponsored by Reepham Life) and at 10 am the square and the Bircham Centre gardens will become a market place to see, test and buy food and drink.
There will be cookery demonstrations in the marquee and the results of the High School Masterchef competition will be announced.
The day will close with a supper featuring local produce: bangers and mash, proper puddings and local ales. Tickets are available from Very Nice Things.
The Food Festival is supported by Reepham Town Council and Broadland District Council and sponsored by a wide range of local and regional businesses.
Reepham Rotary thanks everyone who has volunteered to help during the festival; more volunteers are welcome. Contact: Richard Cooke, Festival Organiser 07889 036852 or email
Tickets for all events can be reserved through the website.
