Dive into the heart of Norfolk’s countryside charm at the Worstead Festival, taking place on the picturesque grounds of Worstead, nestled between the Norfolk Broads and the coast. Set for the weekend of July 27th and 28th, 2024, the festival promises a blend of tradition and contemporary excitement from 10am to 7pm on Saturday and 10am to 6pm on Sunday. At the heart of the Worstead Festival, Native2Norfolk breathes new life into the annual celebration with its signature blend of local flavour and community spirit. Spearheading the food and drink section, Native2Norfolk curates an immersive farmer’s market marquee that showcases the freshest, locally-sourced produce, artisanal goods, and gourmet delights that Norfolk has to offer. This not only provides festival-goers with a taste of the region’s culinary richness but also supports local farmers, producers, and artisans by giving them a platform to shine. Beyond the market, Native2Norfolk enhances the festival atmosphere by managing a vibrant street food area, now proudly named Gastronomy Glade. Here, visitors can embark on a culinary journey through a variety of food stalls, each offering delicious and innovative dishes that highlight the best of local ingredients and cooking talent. From traditional Norfolk recipes to contemporary cuisine, Gastronomy Glade promises a mouth-watering experience for all. Moreover, Native2Norfolk’s involvement brings a unique flair to the festival through the organisation of a cookery theatre. This interactive space becomes a hub for culinary demonstrations, workshops, and live cooking shows, featuring local chefs and culinary experts. Attendees have the opportunity to learn new skills, discover cooking tips, and gain insights into the art of food preparation, all while engaging with Norfolk’s rich gastronomic culture. Through its comprehensive management of the food and drink offerings, Native2Norfolk plays a pivotal role in enriching the Worstead Festival experience. By emphasising local products, crafts, and talents, Native2Norfolk not only contributes to the festival’s success but also fosters a deeper connection between the community and the bountiful resources of Norfolk. Celebrating nearly six decades of community and craftsmanship, Worstead Festival is a tribute to the rural life, farming heritage, and the artisanal talents of North Norfolk. Visitors can expect a vibrant array of local art and craft stalls, sumptuous food and drink, engaging activities, attractions, workshops, live demonstrations, and enthralling music and entertainment.
