Norfolk Show 2010
I spent two days last week at the Norfolk Show [well three if you count the day setting up too]…….I exhibited there last year just three months after launching, so this year was my second outing! Its amazing how different things were this time round, lots more folk have heard of us, lots of fans coming by to say how much they loved the drinks and to stock up, lots of people trying and discovering Breckland Orchard and trade enquiries too. I rolled back on Thursday night feeling totally exhausted, but also having had just a great time!
Norfolk Show is the busiest two day agricultural show in the country, and this year’s estimated crowds were 94,000. Its a wonderful melange of all the great and the good that the county has to offer…with more than a few farm animals chucked in for good measure.
The Food Hall as ever was a hive of activity – a cookery demonstration theatre with great chefs from the county whipping up some great dishes….including the very lovely Tim Kinnaird [ex-Masterchef] who was there both days showing the intricacies of making macarons. …here he is up on stage!
Getting together with fellow food producers is just the BEST thing about the Norfolk Show….there are some amazing amazing food businesses in Norfolk and when we get together there’s a real buzz [and natter natter!]. One of my great Twitter pals was just across the way – Sarah Pettigree [aka @Brays_cottage], Pork Pie Queen to the Stars.
Thank you to……everyone who stopped by to say hello, fellow food producers, the fab stewards [Nick, Richard, Caroline and Jacob] and most of all my wonderful Mum, who came all the way fromWales to help man the stand for the two days.
Looking forward to Norfolk Show 2011 already!
