Abergavenny Food FestivalSeptember is definitely Food Festival season…..and they don’t get much inspirational, more lively and well…beautiful than the Abergavenny Food Festival.  I grew up in a tiny hamlet called Llangwm, which is between Usk and Chepstow in the Wye Valley…….so Abergavenny [or Aber as its known locally] was just up the road.  The  Festival has just blossomed since its inception in 1999 and never looses its magical atmosphere.
