AYLSHAM TAKES IT SLOW
Chef Richard Hughes will launch the Slow Food Aylsham’s Food Festival this month on a weekend full of old favourites. Music and magic are on the menu alongside regular features like the Country Market, Farmers’ Market and Slow Brunch, with the walkabout musical act Banana Ukulele Band and magician and children’s entertainer, Robbie James, as well as Norfolk favourite, folk musician and cartoonist Tony Hall on hand to entertain visitors.
SFA chairman Patrick Prekopp said: “While the focus of the festival will, of course, be on food and particularly local produce, we want to make people think differently about food. It should be fun and a family affair and we hope to sprinkle a bit of magic and stardust around.”
The festival starts on Friday October 6 with the weekly country market in the town hall where you can sample a wide range of home-baked, homegrown and home-made products.
On Saturday morning the regular Farmers’ Market has an extra attraction with music and entertainment and Saturday evening is devoted to wine tasting. The famous Big Brunch on Sunday features the glorious full English fry-up and the all-you-can-eat continental buffet, and table magician Robbie James.
Tickets for events are available from Barnwells Newsagents in the Market Place or by calling 07519 361812. slowfoodaylsham.org.uk or go on Facebook and Twitter.
