Thoughts are now turning to next year’s event after another successful Aylsham Food Festival, which offered a smorgasbord of attractions for Norfolk foodies.

The two smoothie bikes proved a great hit with youngsters who were able to use their pedal power to create strawberry or pineapple drinks in just 30 seconds.

The festival’s Saturday morning activities in the town hall also featured ‘Rock in a Pot’, aimed at younger visitors who were invited to select ingredients to make up a recipe for rock cakes.

Elsewhere, there were cookery demonstrations plus commercial stalls to complement the farmers’ market in the Market Place.

The festival, from October 6 to 8, was organised by Slow Food Aylsham, whose spokesman Roger Willis said: “We’ve managed to cover a lot of bases with this year’s festival, with events for youngsters and adults, plus being able to support local producers of Norfolk’s finest foods. Here’s to 2018.”
