Around the World in 80 Dishes returns to King’s Lynn

Tasty treats from around the world will be on offer in King's Lynn later this year as Around the World in 80 Dishes makes a return.

The event has grown over its eight year history and regularly attracts around 1,000 visitors.

This year the event has moved to the town's Corn Exchange and will be held on Sunday, November 6.

A recipe wall and wider range of local food businesses, voluntary and community groups are set to be involved.

The event is a celebration of foods from other cultures and offers the chance to sample different tastes from across the globe.
