THE countdown to the Burnham Food Festival is on ahead of its seventh visit to the town this Saturday.

The free festival gets underway at 9am across four streets in the town centre, with more than 100 stalls to explore, as well as workshops, buskers and cooking demonstrations.

Among those demonstrating their 
talents at the indoor KDS Demo Stage in College Street will be Bini Ludlow, who runs her own Indian cookery school in Somerset, at 1pm, followed by former Great Burnham Bake-Off winners Nigel and Pat Smith at 2pm, who will share the secret of their award-winning sourdough bread.

The bake-off itself will be returning with a focus on loaves, cakes and tarts – and it is not too late to enter.

Pick up an entry form and get your tasty treat to Somerset Skills And Learning in Princess Street by 9am on Saturday for a chance to win.

Highlights from the rest of the festival include a Punch and Judy show, face-painter, entertainers and a harvest trail, with entry forms available from stewards on the day.

Organisers are also inviting donations to Burnham Foodbank on the day, with a list of food required available from trusseltrust.org
