Visitors sampled and bought from more than 60 north Norfolk food and drink producers.

The Great British Bake Off’s Kate Barmby made an appearance in the cookery theatre along with other celebrated chefs including Vanessa Scott, from Strattons Hotel in Swaffham, Chris Coubrough, from Flying Kiwi Inns and Richard Bainbridge from Benedicts, Norwich.

Louisa Grant, from Kettle Chips, the festival’s headline sponsor, said: “It’s been brilliant. I’ve heard it was on course to be a record year for attendance.
