It is with regret that we have to postpone our food festival yet again. As we approach June 2021, the situation has improved greatly since last year however there still exist uncertainties and we cannot plan for our usual event in September. As our regular visitors know, we are not a street based festival and our event is confined to one site. We expect that there will remain restrictions on large gatherings in one place and behaviours such as social distancing etc. which would affect the experience for visitors. Should these be removed, we feel there will be insufficient time to plan and promote the event, and rather than dissapoint, we would prefer to come back stronger and better next year.
In the meantime, Narberth grows as a food destination and I remind you that we have left the list of stallholders on the website. There are links to their own websites and facebook pages and many sell their products online and I know that many of you have already bought from them over these past months, particularly over Christmas. Your support has been invaluable to many local producers.
As we wrote last year, nothing can match the pleasure we see on your faces as you browse the food stalls, watch the chefs demonstrating their skills and enjoying the street food whilst listening to some great live music. Let’s hope we can do it again soon.
