The Alcester Autumn Food Festival is setting up in and around the High Street and will feature a wide range of delicious delectables from local producers as well as treats from further afield. The town’s cafes, pubs and shops will also be throwing their doors open and getting into the festival spirit.
Visitors will also be able to witness the town’s colourful Court Leet conduct an assizes. Basically, the Medieval equivalent of a food standards inspection ensuring the festive fare is fit for consumption.
A spokesperson said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming visitors and exhibitors to our wonderful town to browse over 100 stalls with delectable delights including hot and cold street foods, various drinks, cheeses and jams, desserts and confectionery, to name but a few. It really is any foodie’s perfect day out!”
