letchworth2Last weekend [22nd/23rd May] was the very first Letchworth Food Festival located in the town centre. The weather was nothing short of glorious, bright sunshine and not a cloud in the sky – perfect infact for everything the Food Festival had to offer – chefs on stage demonstrating recipes and sharing their expertise, regional producers sampling some fabulous food and drink and plenty to keep the children occupied too!

The population of Letchworth came and supported the Festival, and it was lovely to sample and chat to so many folk!

No ordinary town and no ordinary Food Festival…….the Letchworth Heritage  Foundation and Inspired Event Management [Jenny and Nadia] put on a Food Festival that was just fab! Thank you guys, we had a really enjoyable weekend
