Food lovers flock to Norwich for Proudly Norfolk Food and Drink Festival

The festival was a big hit with food lovers.

Food lovers flocked to Norwich on Sunday for this year's 'Proudly Norfolk Food and Drink Festival.'

The area in and around The Forum was transformed into a farmers' market, showcasing produce from across the county and beyond.

As part of the day, there were cookery demonstrations, lessons on making beeswax candles and even a cast of dancing sheep!

The event was a big boost for independent businesses, many of whom had sold out of stock by the time the stalls closed at 4pm.

Organisers say that this year's festival was their most successful to date, despite the occasional heavy shower, and next year's show could be even bigger with 15 new producers having joined the organisation.

"It's a great opportunity for us to show all the hard work we put in all year round and show off our products," Independent food producer Stephen Newham told ITV News Anglia.

"Norfolk is well-known for its high-quality food and drink and everyone here today has shown that."
