A street food festival with a socially distanced twist is to take place in Dereham after having its first successful run in Norwich.

Adam Coulton is organising the Pop Up Street Food Festival to take place at Dereham Town FC’s ground at Aldiss Park on June 9-10 (Tuesday and Wednesday) 3pm to 8pm.

Mr Coulton said the “drive-through” concept saw people ordering food directly from their vehicles. He said around 600 cars visited the festival over the three days it was at Lower Clarence Road in Norwich.

Mr Coulton said: “The system ran like a dream and we were really happy with it.”

Vendors at the Norwich festival included Porkys Pit from Lowestoft serving hog roast, Fitzroy Street Food serving mac and cheese, The Mexican serving burritos and salad boxes and Lamartis serving ‘pimped’ ice cream tubs. Mr Coulton said there would be a similar line-up for the Dereham event.
