The county’s largest local food and drink festival gets underway in Horsham today (Saturday September 5).

The Big Nibble, organised by Horsham District Council (HDC), has returned to the town and will be celebrating all things food across the weekend.

A mixture of foods, both sweet and savoury, will be available for visitors to try and buy as well as hot and cold products and drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.

This year also sees a new addition to the popular event with an International food festival being held in East Street, Park Place and Market Square.

The Little Nibble is also returning, with the event for youngsters taking place on both days over the weekend.

The forum will be packed with lots of fun activities for children including arts and crafts zones, experimenting with foods, bouncy castles and the ever popular Crazy Food Figure competition. All of the food vendors will be supplying child size portions so they don’t miss out on Horsham’s famous street food.

On Sunday visitors can also enjoy taster sessions from local restaurants from 10.30am to 11.30am and from 2.30pm to 3.30pm.

Live music and entertainment will also be on hand throughout the weekend.

A spokesperson for HDC said: “The Big Nibble is a great showcase of what West Sussex has to offer all the foodies out there, so make sure not to miss it and head into Horsham town centre on September 5 and 6.”

Visitors to the festival will also be able to find out about all the events, promotions and foodie fun still to come across the county by picking up the annual Food and Drink Guide.
