Hungerford’s fantastic Food Festival came an ‘impressive’ joint third is the national ‘Bring Home the Harvest’ competition, organised by the charity behind British Food Fortnight and the Telegraph aimed at rekindling the tradition of celebrating the harvest.

“Impressive”: the Hungerford Food Festival & Harvest

“Hungerford was impressive,” said Philip Clarke, of the event which included local chefs, smallholders and a collection of local apples for juicing. “It took place on the high street. It also involved children, who are the producers and consumers of the future.”

Commenting on the competition entries which came from all across the country, Alexia Robinson, founder of Love British Food said: “It was wonderful to see the public getting excited about British food, just as the Italians and French are proud of their produce.”
