FOOD & DRINK FESTIVAL – Saturday 6th October

If you enjoy good food and drink and want to support local producers then make sure you are in Harleston on Saturday 6th October. Once again there will be stalls in the Market Place between 9.30 and 3.30pm selling cakes and pastries, preserves and jams, cider, apple juice and fruit liqueurs, beautiful flowers and much more. There will be street food too – from Flying Chef, Pepperells, Waffle Works and Harleston’s Future amongst others. Once again Shotford Hall Farm and Hill Farm will be open for visitors with lots of exciting displays and the vintage bus will provide a free shuttle service. Too Many Cooks will provide entertainment with songs new and old about the delights of food and drink.

That’s not all! For the first time there will also be six Food & Drink Walks which will take place during the day and take in many of the local shops and eateries where samples will be provided. This is an ideal activity to do as a group of friends, family members or existing group – for further details follow the link from Food and Drink Walk on the home page at www.visitharleston.org.uk.

Finally, we need your help. We want to run a stall selling second hand cook books. If you have any you would be willing to donate please take them into Robinson’s Stationers in Harleston as soon as possible and no later than 1st October. Thank you.

Since the unveiling of Harleston Hare (seen here with artist ScribblyRoo) on 24th June, there have been many people visiting as part of the GoGoHares Trail. It has helped put Harleston on the map and many have stopped awhile to enjoy the delights of the town and the area. It will be in place until early September when it will be collected up ready to be auctioned to raise money for Break charity.

We have now heard that it will be part of an online auction that will run until 11th October.


If you would like to see Harleston Hare return to us permanently and are able to pledge a contribution to a purchase fund please email [email protected] or speak to Robin Twigge at The Swan. Let’s work together on this?
