Rugby Food and Drink Festival returns to the town in September, promising a feast of delights.

It runs from Thursday September 25 to Sunday September 28 and showcases the variety of high-quality food and drink that Rugby and the surrounding area has to offer.

On the menu will be a Farmer’s Market, two colourful and tantalising Food Fayres, appetizing demonstrations and a great selection of real ales.

There will also be a demonstration kitchen, where chefs will share their skills with the public, and a Real Ale Trail promoting a selection of beers and ciders from local and national brewers. Restaurants, cafes and pubs will be laying on their own special events.

Aftab Gaffar, managing director of Rugby First, which is organising the festival, said: “Last year’s festival was extremely successful. We plan to build on that success and encourage any businesses wishing to participate to get in touch as soon as possible as space is limited.”

Anyone interested in having a stall at the festival, demonstrating in the special kitchen or getting involved in any other way should call (01788) 890 789 or email
