Food and wine delights come to Hitchin

FOODIES were spoilt for choice last weekend at the second Hitchin Wine and Food Festival, which featured more than 20 suppliers and their goods.

The event, which was held at Hitchin Town Hall, saw a range of wines, treats, epicurean delights and Christmas gifts on display and for sale.

Chutneys, cheese, vegetables and meat were amongst the foods on offer, with a number of wine suppliers also making their mark.

The two-day event, which was held on both days over the weekend, was organised by the Rotary Club of Hitchin Tilehouse and also supported by The Comet newspaper and Waitrose in Hitchin.

“We had 800 people through our doors over the weekend,” said Liz Willoughby of the Tilehouse Rotary.

“The feedback we have had has been positive, but we are looking to make this an annual event so would appreciate more.”
