A popular food and craft fair is returning to Leicester this weekend, following a two-year hiatus.
The event is taking place at Belgrave Hall on Saturday, September 17 and Sunday 18, running from 11am until 4pm on both days.
The fair – which is returning after a two-year break – has been expanded to include arts and crafts, with demonstrations and a chance to buy unique gifts from local artists.
Tasty delights available to buy will include locally-made preserves, cupcakes, cookies and sweet treats, as well as traditional ice-cream, freshly ground coffee and a selection of organic meats, fruits, vegetables and eggs.
Visitors will also be able to browse locally-made linocut prints, bespoke watercolour portraits and handmade craft items for the home, plus try out needle felting, take part in talks and demonstrations, and sample many of the foods on offer.
Organic burgers, bacon sandwiches, ice-creams and sweet treats will be available for hungry visitors to buy as they browse the fair.
“It’s wonderful to welcoming this popular event back to the beautiful surroundings of Belgrave Hall and Gardens after a two-year break,” said Cllr Piara Singh Clair, deputy city mayor.
“The fair brings together a wide range of specialist food and drink providers, from Leicestershire and further afield, with an emphasis on local talent and sustainability.
“We’re all aware of Leicestershire’s great reputation as a ‘foodie’ destination, but by opening up this event to artists and makers, we’re also able to showcase the best of our local creativity.
“It’s great to be able to support small businesses in this way, and to be staging an event with such a good reputation, that we know lots of people will thoroughly enjoy,” she added.
