Breckland food festival
After a successful debut of the Breckland food festival as part of the Norfolk food festival last year, the organisers will celebrate the area's local food and drink and unique countryside on September 14-16.
The weekend will feature a pop-up restaurant, farmers' market with cookery theatre, an evening with James Parry, chair of The Breckland Society, a live outside broadcast by Radio Norfolk's Garden Party and much more.
The festival will showcase everything local from the humble potato to the delicate flavours of the macaron, from local cheeses to chilled ales and from game to garden produce. Local restaurants, attractions, retailers and schools come together in Swaffham as part of the increasingly popular month long Norfolk Food and Drink Festival.
The Brecks sit across the Norfolk-Suffolk border and are one of the best wildlife hotspots in the UK with almost 13,000 species recorded, of which more than 2,100 are of national conservation concern.
By involving everyone from school children to visitors, producers and restaurants in the festival, the organisers hope to educate visitors about the special landscape while having fun socialising with lots of good food and drink.

A spokesman said: 'Many of us have lost the connection between what we enjoy on our plate and what we value in our surrounding countryside.
'By re-connecting with our surroundings we can better understand the impact that the vital necessities of food and drink can make to the countryside we see around us.'
