*Just* back from Abergavenny Food Festival last night…..two days of foodie fun in the South Wales rolling hills. I grew up a stonesthrow away ….in a small village called Llangwm, which is just outside Usk. My granny, Jessie also lived there. So its aways a pleasure and a joy to ‘go home’ and spend a few days amongst familiar hills and valleys as opposed to the flat lands of the East of England!
It’s a real ‘town’ affair, with lots of locations spread throughout the town and castle….as opposed to many food festivals that are concentrated in a specific area. It gives Abergavenny a very unique feel….even the charity shops in the High Street join in and have a drive on selling 2nd hand books and baking equipment.
