Photo gallery: Hundreds drawn to Wymondham’s first mini food festival

Organisers behind Wymondham's first mini food festival have hailed the event as a success after hundreds of people turned out to enjoy a wealth of tasty treats.

Central Hall was packed yesterday with families browsing an array of stalls offering recipe tips and the best of local produce, such as honey, preserves, cakes, juices and cheese.

Among the stallholders were youngsters from the town's schools selling delicious snacks they had made in their cookery classes.

The inaugural four-event event, called Tastes of Wymondham, also encouraged children to try their hand at some food-themed artwork, while pupils from Robert Kett Junior School, Ashleigh Infant School and Spooner Row Primary School entertained the crowds with music and singing.

Outside they could have fun with a range of play equipment and have a go at some drumming.

The festival was opened by South Norfolk Council chairman Sue Thomson and Wymondham Town Mayor Neil Ward.

Organiser Anna Brett, extended schools co-ordinator at Norfolk County Council, said the large turnout had taken her by surprise.
