A date has been set for Chippenham’s first food and drink festival.

It is being organised for Sunday, July 13, by the same people who bring the farmers’ market to the town each second Sunday of the month.

The High Street is to filled with food and drink stalls, cookery demonstrations, music and entertainment.

Sue Thomson, organiser of the festival and farmers’ market, said: “The popularity of the fresh local produce at the Sunday markets is testament to Chippenham’s appreciation of distinctive foods, lovingly produced.

“For the festival, the High Street will be lined with stalls, including some innovative variations on food-to-go.”
