Winter Festival

November 16, 2010

A quick reminder that the Winter Food Festival takes place this coming Sunday, 21 November from 11 -5.00pm at Leicester Market.  Cannily timed to cash-in on the crowds that come in for the Xmas lights switch-on, the event attracted 15,000 last year and all 200 stalls are taken this year. Events include a demonstration of Stilton-making from the people at Long Clawson dairy (12.30pm) but from what I remember of last year I’ll  be looking forward to finding some quality game.  

In other news,  more plaudits for the Olive Branch in Clipsham, rated the nation’s sixth best gastro pub in a list of the top 50 by trade mag the Morning Advertiser.  I reckon I’ve been been to ten of them and if the Olive Branch really merits beating the Sportsman, near Whitstable, by six places then it must be on very good form indeed.
