Wymondham Abbey is hosting the festival on Saturday, September 23, with a focus on vegetarian food, to coincide with the abbey's annual harvest festival.

A spokesman said: 'This is an issue attracting more and more interest as people consider the ethics and environmental impact of the food we eat.'

The festival will include a fruit and vegetable competition, food traders' stalls, a pop-up cafe, demonstrations and activities.

There will also be a bake-off for children and adults aged up to 21. Entries can be any type of cake or biscuit made at home.
