Thousands of people have flocked to the grounds of Holkham Estate to enjoy culinary delights ranging from gourmet popcorn to Indian curries.
The North Norfolk Food and Drink Festival, now in its 12th year, began on Saturday and concludes this afternoon (Sunday, September 6).
Alice Roberts, from the festival, said around 5,000 people went to the first day of the event and a similar number were expected today.
She said: "It's been really good - we've had great attendance. The festival was cancelled last year because of Covid and I think people are just glad it's back."
The festival takes place in the walled garden of Holkham Hall, and features food and drink producers who grow, rear, supply and sell their produce in north Norfolk.
