Food lovers flock to St Neots for tasty treats at Food and Drink Festival!
Around 3,500 visitors attended the event which saw a record number of 38 stalls set up in the square, including artisan foods and craft ales. There was a variety of family entertainment for the whole family, including a live cooking demonstration using local produce, funfair and a charity duck race for Hunts Community Cancer Network.
Local singer Jamie Gilman-Lewis opened the event with an acoustic performance before Chef Chris Robson, from Mad Professor Events, began cooking a delicious selection of meals using produce available to buy from the market. His dishes included Real Ale pulled pork served in a brioche roll and tasty teriyaki lamb.
The event was organised by St Neots Town Council in partnership with the Huntingdon Community Cancer Network.
Event Manager for St Neots Town Council, Debbie King, said: “It was great to see the Market Square so full of stalls. We have a great selection of suppliers local to St Neots, and it was great to see them showcasing their products. We have received a lot of positive comments from the public about how much they enjoyed the day”.
