The North Norfolk Food and Drink Festival returns in September. Find out more…
The much loved North Norfolk Food and Drink Festival returns to Holkham on September 4 and 5, 2021.
After a year’s break due to the pandemic, the festival, now in its 12th year, takes place in the glorious walled garden on the Holkham estate.
The dog-friendly, two-day event, with Kettle Chips as the headline sponsor, is one of the county’s original food festivals and regularly attracts up to 11,000 people.
Around 65 local producers sell everything from gin to chocolate, from bread to cheese and from chutney to brownies! They represent the best of the best and an emphasis is on those based in North Norfolk.
The popular cookery theatre, sponsored by Wells butcher Arthur Howell, is set to return, with a mixture of new names and established figures using the region’s larder to create mouth-watering dishes.
Add in a wide selection of pop up concessions where you can buy delicious coffees, pizzas and more, live music, a well stocked bar and lots of picnicking options, and it’s a great day to enjoy all that the county’s foodie scene has to offer.
Festival chair Martin Billing says: ‘We are obviously delighted to be back, in person, after a year’s gap. We are all raring to go and support both local producers and many of our talented chefs. It has been a more than hard year, and now we want to look forward and celebrate the wonderful part of the world we live in and its amazing culinary scene. And how lucky are we that we get to do it all in the Walled Garden at Holkham?’
The festival is run by local foodies who all volunteer their services to support this family-friendly event which is a firm favourite in the culinary calendar. Facilities and attractions at the hall, an 18th century Palladian style house, are also available including shops and a cafe. There are many lovely Estate walks and Holkham beach is regularly voted one of the best in the country.
