Sun, music and Norfolk street food at Holkham Hall's Feast in the Park




After weeks of lockdown, friends and families have been able to enjoy the sunshine, music and locally-produced food in the grounds of an 18th-century country house.

Holkham Hall’s Feast in the Park events are taking place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in July and throughout August.

Plenty of people took advantage of the good weather on Sunday to sit in Holkham Park with social distancing in place as street food stalls sold their dishes to visitors.

Celia Deeley, general manager for Holkham Enterprises, said: “Feast in the Park has proved popular with people wishing to enjoy delicious, locally-produced food together with incredible views and chilled tunes.”

The event has ‘We’re Good to Go’ official accreditation, a UK wide industry standard which has been developed in partnership with Visit England.

Mrs Deeley said “carefully planned operational changes” include sanitising stations, contactless card payments and additional cleaning regimes.

She added that this is “allowing visitors to enjoy a great day out in a safe and secure way”.

Among the food stalls, which slightly vary from week to week, are Solar Scoops ice-cream, The Duck Truck, Woodland Pizza, mexican wraps, a chinese noodle bar, The Vic’s Belted Beef Bar, The Bucket List and vegan burgers.

Cuppa Jo’s coffee as well as The Food Dude’s waffle stick and crepes are also on offer at the events.

Feast in the Park launched at the start of July and is running from noon to 8pm on Friday and Saturdays with the last entry time being 7pm.

On Sundays, the event is running between the reduced hours of noon and 4pm.

The summer event aims to celebrate and support local businesses.
