Bidwells Norwich and Norfolk Food Festival ended last night after eight days, raising thousands of pounds for the Parkinsons Disease Society.

Young farmers displayed model farms and 4,000 local sausages were considered for the Battle of the Bangers competition.

Moveable Feast involved 18 restaurants hosting different courses for roving diners, while the new Great Norfolk Food Debate, featuring Dr David Pencheon, director for the NHS Sustainability Unit, involved a spirited debate on GM foods and supermarkets.

VisitNorwich is inviting businesses interested in taking part in the 2009 competition to call 01603 727979.
