The pop-up event will take place from Friday, May 22 to Sunday, May 24 in the car park of The Silver Fox pub in Taverham and will feature six local food vendors.

It will run from 4pm to 8pm Friday and Saturday and 12pm to 7pm on Sunday, when there will also be roast dinners available with all the trimmings.

To adhere to government advice, it will be drive-thru only and customers will pull up to the van they want to order from and all payments need to be made on card.

It has been organised by Adam Coulton, 35, who lives in the village and is the director of The Nearly Festival, which showcases the UK’s best tribute acts across East Anglia every summer.

With all his upcoming events postponed due to coronavirus, he wanted to do something to cheer people up and enlisted the help of vendors that had been booked for his music festivals.

The Silver Fox landlord will also be selling bottled beers and soft drinks to takeaway and Cafe No 2, which is attached to the pub, will be offering homemade muffins and smoothies.

Mr Coulton said: “I work in the events industry so my ship had been sunk and, like everyone else, it has been about and making the most of a bad situation.

“We’ve made sure it follows social distancing guidelines and is safe, which is my number one priority, and it will be 100pc drive-thru to start until we find our feet.

“If all goes well we will be looking to do local click and collect and going to different areas in the future.”
