The Big Nibble – A Slice of Sussex Saturday 3 & Sunday 4 September

Those passionate about local food and drink should look out for The Big Nibble weekend in Horsham town centre and across the District, launching the month-long Horsham District Food & Drink Festival from 3 September - 2 October.

The Big Nibble weekend is organised by Horsham District Council and is an event of two halves. On Saturday the main entertainment takes place in Horsham with an extra special local produce market, entertaining high quality chef demonstrations at the Live Cookery Theatre, free tastings and take-away recipe sheets, a beer trail across town, plus competitions, events and special offers from local food businesses.
