THOUSANDS of foodies turned out in Rhuddlan on Saturday as the town celebrated its annual food and drink festival.

Rhuddlan Food Festival welcomed 2,000 people among the exciting sights and smells created by some of the best food and drink North Wales has to offer.

More than 50 producers and independent shops showcased their goods on Parliament Street, near the historic Rhuddlan Castle. Food stalls included hog roasts, homemade fudge, vegan cakes and specialist cheese, while there were opportunities to sample gins, vodka and fizz.

There were also crafts stalls with organic items such as bee products and candles, and the charities RSPB Cymru and Alzheimer’s Research were present to talk about their causes.

Musical entertainment was provided by school choirs from Ysgol Y Castell and Cylch Meithrin, the ukulele musician Annabel Jacobsen and acoustic dance headliners The Hedge Gods.

Children's activities included face painting, balloon modelling and a bouncy castle.

Ffion White, event organiser for Bespoke Fitness and Events, said: "The festival was fabulous, 'jam-packed' full of things to do, producers to meet and local food and drink to sample. It was a true celebration for food and drink lovers.

"Thank you to all involved and the visitors for their support. 2020 will be bigger and better!"
