OSWESTRY’S mayor is looking forward to the ‘fun and excitement’ of the town’s popular food and drink festival this month.
The event, which usually takes place in July, will go ahead on Saturday, September 18 and Sunday, September 19.
Food and drink exhibitors from the region will be baking and brewing to bring their goods for locals and visitors across the weekend.
And Councillor Mark Jones, town mayor, is looking forward to the event.
He said: “We have our festival favourites that visitors love to see every year, to stock up on tasty treats, plus specialist exhibitors introducing themselves to an Oswestry audience for the first time.
“It has been a difficult period for everyone since the emergence of the Covid pandemic and this festival we bring some fun and excitement back to Oswestry as it always has in the past.
“We’re really looking forward to the weekend.”
There will be African, Middle-Eastern, Malaysian, Indian, and Spanish cooking plus the pick of local produce from sausages to hog roast, and crepes to ciders.
For those with a sweet tooth, there’s traditional cakes, cupcakes and fancies.
There will be award-winning ciders and ales from both sides of the border on offer, as well as cocktails, liqueurs and wines from near and far.
The festival will also welcome Oswestry’s own gin and real ale producers.
Entertainment will include live music and family activities, which are free for guests to enjoy.
Those attending the festival are being reminded that the TNS Fun Day will also be taking place on Saturday, September 18 at Cae Glas Park, and the Global Grooves Music in the Park will take place at the same location on Sunday, September 19.
The Oswestry Food and Drink Festival, organised by Oswestry Town Council, will take place between 10am and 4pm over the two days.
