Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - FOOD & DRINK -

The Faver­sham Food Fes­ti­val is back this week­end, with lash­ings of lovely food and drink. Held in and around the town cen­tre, the fes­ti­val will run on Satur­day, Septem­ber 15 and Sun­day, Septem­ber 16 from 10am to 5pm. Or­gan­ised by pas­sion­ate vol­un­teers, the event cel­e­brates lo­cal food and drink and prom­ises to be fam­ily-friendly. Among the liq­uid treats will be the Faver­sham Ale Trail, which runs from noon on Fri­day, Septem­ber 14 and of­fers eight beers to taste and judge at hostel­ries around the town. Ale Trail tick­ets cost £5 and can be bought from the fes­ti­val stall on the Mar­ket Place - un­til they sell out.

There will also be me­dievalthemed cel­e­bra­tions, and plenty of old-fash­ioned tasty treats.

Now in its third year, the fes­ti­val pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for people to en­joy and cel­e­brate what the East Kent tri­an­gle has to of­fer - a term coined by The Good Food Guide in 2009. The area is well known for its hops, oys­ters, ap­ple or­chards for cider, and is home to both Brog­dale Na­tional Fruit Col­lec­tion and historic brew­ery Shep­herd Neame.

Younger fes­ti­val visi­tors will be able to en­joy a teddy bears’ pic­nic and chil­dren’s fancy dress, plus for all ages there will be a range of live mu­sic.
