THE annual Eat:Wellington food and drink festival will see the town's streets fill with more than 90 of the regions best producers.

The event features a packed programme of activities including pop-up cookery school, food talks and demo stage alongside tractors, buskers and entertainers on Saturday, September 2, from 10am until 4pm.

You can learn some Italian recipes at the Hawksmoor Cookery School free workshops in the community centre from 11am.

In the same venue at 11.30am food talks will give you a chance to chew over aspects of our food culture.

The Fresh Ideas demo kitchen will cover themes such as baking, family cooking and freshly ground spices, concluding with an Indian finale sure to get everyone dancing - all starting in the scout hut at 11am.

Organiser Bev Milner Simonds said: "It has been a real joy bringing together so many elements for this year's food and drink festival and we hope that there is something for all tastes and appetites.

"With 90 traders to choose from we have included some real variety."

Co-organiser Sarah Milner Simonds said: "We have found Wellington a welcoming town, with so many ways to join in with the life of the community.

"This year we will have the Sustainable Food group, pupils from Court Fields School, the Quaker Friends, Transition Town Wellington members, Rotary Club, Friends of Wellington Park, the Carnival Club, Army Cadets and Love Food, Hate Waste joining us on the day.

"Food brings us all together and when 'them thar hills' are so bountiful, there’s always room for more at the table."
