Indulge in local food and produce at Victorian Fayre
Food and drink lovers alike will delight in the 'fare' that will be available at this year's Worcester Victorian Fayre from Thursday 28 November until Sunday 1 December.
The Victorian Fayre is a veritable hunting ground for homemade sweets, cakes and bakes, cheeses, ales, ciders, sauces, jams and chutneys – which all make great and very affordable Christmas gifts.
A record number of leading producers from the region are making a special effort to tickle the taste buds of the thousands of visitors expected to throng to the city, with some brand new tastes and flavours.
Look out for the highly popular Feast StrEat - a long established Midlands street food company. Sample the latest 'Mac and Cheese' offering - freshly prepared macaroni with their own creamy four cheese home-made sauce, served with a range of toppings including pulled pork, blue cheese and broccoli, smoked crispy bacon or spicy chilli con carne.
The infamous Chesters Restaurant in New Street, Worcester, which has been running as long as the Victorian Fayre itself, will again be setting up a stall outside their restaurant, selling their own delicious range of burritos and nachos, authentic Mexican recipes that include vegan, vegetarian, gluten free options and meat dishes too.
For something different why not pay a visit to the Nutty Nutcrackers Emporium – they sell a range of fabulous Russian dolls, Christmas tree stackers, toys, novelties and surprises.
Don't miss The Gwatkins Cider Company with their infamous home produced mulled ciders and wines served hot by the cup - plus take-away bottles and gift-packs of all prices and sizes, and to suit all pockets.
The Luxury Hampers & Gift Company will be at the Fayre exhibiting a wide range of bespoke hampers and gifts including Nana Lily's world famous Christmas puddings and Leo Hubert's Gin Liqueur.
Local artist and photographer Kevin Price will be bringing a large selection of local landscapes captured on his own camera, to display alongside his own fine art.
"Worcester's Victorian Fayre is one of the highlights of the Midlands' festive calendar, and with all sorts of culinary delights available, you definitely won't be leaving hungry!" says Worcester City Council's events organiser, Helen Mole.
"Coming to the Fayre is a great way to support local businesses, as a huge number will be selling food, drink and unique handmade gifts this year."
There will also be lots of entertainment throughout the weekend, including a Victorian Carousel, a recreated Victorian slum inhabited by raucous residents, and much much more...
