What a year. It's been an absolute roller coaster for us.
We've still felt the effects of Coronavirus throughout this year, with many summer festivals being cancelled or postponed.
Preparations are now underway for CJ's Events Warwickshire, who are set to host a Winter Food Festival on Sunday, November 24 which take place in the Town Centre between 10am and 5pm.
A spokesperson for CJ's Events Warwickshire said: "There is a high demand in Food Festivals and with the huge success of Warwick Food Festival, we'd like to add something different to the town with a special Winter edition. There will be some of the very best regional producers, fresh street food and family entertainment. We have wanted to do this for some time and we're pleased to now have the approval from Warwick District Council.'
They added: 'We are expecting around 50 stands, live entertainment, carol singing, brass bands, craft workshops, gin tasting sessions, real reindeer and an opportunity for children to meet Santa. We have been operating food festivals for 4 years now, and this will be our first Winter version which the whole team are very excited about. This is also a fantastic opportunity for the town centre, which we hope many of the independent shops will benefit from the additional footfall during the Christmas period.'
Applications for the festival will open on Monday 11th March and more details of the event will be available from then through the website www.winterfoodfestival.co.uk , which is currently being built. However local food & drink businesses who have shops within Warwick town and wish to get involved are encouraged to get in touch before then by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01926 800 75
