In which I go to the Foodie Festival

On Saturday Sam and I strolled through Brighton towards Hove Lawns, where the Foodie Festival was happening. Its a three day event, with oodles of stalls selling different types of food, and also stalls selling amazing drinks, things to make cooking more fun and tents with displays of cooking by celebrity chefs. Not only that, there was also a live music stage, and on that live music stage our friend Seb Blake happened to be playing! It was a lovely coincidence, as it meant that some other people we knew would be there too.

We saw a band called Half Crown perform too, and they were amazing, a real mixture of numbers, a few with a trumpet flung in for good measure!

Most stalls were enticing people to look closer with some amazing tasters, churros and pizza being my favourite.

You could sit on a deck chair with your toes in the sand at the Jamie Oliver area (sand is something Brighton is lacking in!) or, like us cool down with a Pimms (although ours were posh Pimms with Prosecco & ginger beer in too!) in front of the music stage. We saw people wondering around sipping rum cocktails out of coconuts, or you could grab a Dorset Cider and sit in the shade.

Hove Lawns is right on the Seafront, so there was a cooling breeze (too cool it turned out, as we all got sunburnt) and then we went for a little paddle in the sea afterwards.
