Alnwick Food and Drink Festival makes welcome return

Alnwick Food and Drink Festival made a welcome return to the calendar after a three year absence.

A three-day event was organised by Market Place Europe, which manages the town’s twice-weekly market.

Hundreds of visitors enjoyed the sights and smells of international and local traders serving up delicious treats and snapped up artisan crafts on sale.

The food festival had been in limbo since 2019 when Local Living, a social enterprise, relinquished its market licence and then Covid struck.

Market Place took over management of the market last July following the withdrawal of Geraud UK. It is operated under contract from Northumberland Estates.
