A POPULAR Herefordshire food festival is making a return after three years away due to the Covid pandemic.

Preparations are well under way for Kington's Summer Food Festival, which promises to showcase some of the finest seasonal food and drink from around the county.

The event was introduced in 2017 to complement Kington's already popular winter food and drink festival, offering visitors a taste of summer with a local twist.

Stallholders at previous festivals have included Lyonshall based blackcurrant liqueur producers British Cassis, Kington based Uncle G's ice cream, Marden's Old Granary Pierogi, Golden Valley Goats and many other local favourites.


There will be a mix of street food, cocktails and live music along with the quality local produce to enjoy, and organiser Pam Peek said that work has been ongoing to get the festival on again.

She said that they managed to get the Winter Food Festival back last December and that it was a great success, and that they are hopeful that the summer will prove no different.

The Kington Summer Food Festival returns on Saturday June 4.
