Reepham geared up for August Food Festival 

Sunday 22nd August 10 am – 4 pm

The region’s food producers are getting their wares ready and dusting off their stalls for the return of the Reepham Food Festival. Thirty stalls will offer a mix of hot and cold food and drinks to taste and buy.  After nearly two years of postponements everyone is looking forward to being out and about again. For safety reasons, the Rotary Club has restricted the number of stalls for this year’s event. 

Locally produced ciders, beers, wines, spirits and fruit juices will be on offer.  There will be a hog roast and burgers, cold meats pies and curries, chutneys and jams, chocolates, ice creams and  kitchen things.  And, of course, Reepham’s eateries will be open and welcoming you. The Bircham Gardens will again be open as a picnic area for you to consume your purchases. 

There will be cookery demonstrations from our own local experts arranged by Reepham WI.  See how you can pick up tips and tricks to make more of your cooking. 

Local artists will be joining in too, with an exhibition in St Michael’s Community Hall.  You can see paintings, ceramics and tapestries, talk to the artists, view and buy. 

You can also see what our local organisations are up to: Reepham Rotary will have news of the new Sunshine Cafe for people with memory loss which will be launched in September.  Reepham Lions will be raising funds for their good causes with a food tombola and the Scouts will be on hand to explain their latest plans. 

The Festival promises to be a safe day out, with well spaced stalls and a chance to meet and enjoy seeing your neighbours in the fresh air and trying new ideas in food. 

The Festival is organised by Reepham Rotary Club with a growing number of other organisations and individuals. Entry is free from 10 am to 4pm. Volunteers are welcome through the Festival website.
