Ashfield Food and Drink Festival cooked up a storm over the weekend

Thousands visited the Ashfield Food and Drink Festival in Hucknall over the weekend, which saw a selection of classic foods and internationally inspired dishes to excite the taste buds.

The festival celebrates the best food and drink producers from the region and across the UK. Taking over the pedestrianised High Street in Hucknall, it’s fantastic to see the festival return for the fourth year.

Visitors enjoyed the mouth-watering selection of food and drink, all in the company of live music from the Red Hot Band, and a live cookery demonstration by a healthy eating chef.
