Thousands of people have packed in to Nantwich town centre over the last 24 hours to enjoy the annual Nantwich Food Festival.

The sun has certainly shone on the event’s organisers as the warm weather has produced bumper crowds for the popular three-day festival.

The event opened yesterday (August 31) and continued today and finishes tomorrow (September 2).

Nantwich has been transformed into a food lovers’ paradise, with hundreds of stalls and exhibitors offering tasty treats from across Cheshire.

And some exhibitors have come from all over the world, with food and drink from Mexico, America, Germany, Iran, India and Thailand, as well as artisan producers from all over the UK.

Nantwich Civic Hall has staged a number of live demonstrations by top chefs from around the UK, including Paul Rankin, Sean Wilson and Nigel Brown.

Sophie Faldo, winner of the Great British Bake Off 2017, is appearing at the Civic Hall today (September 2).
