Food and drink

The Royal Norfolk Show will have a packed programme of food and drink events, including the ever popular Adnams Food and Drink Experience, the Flavours Food Hub, Art of Butchery show and much, much more across the showground.

Adnams Food and Drink Experience

Nowhere in the county will you find such a unique collection of local food crafts, merchants and artisans than at the Adnams Food and Drink Experience.

Packed with 100 producers from across the county, the region and the country selling the best sizzling sausages, tempting pies, creamy cheeses and posh pop.  This year alone there will be over 75 producers from the region and over 60 from the county!

With a focus on top-quality local food and drink producers, foodies can indulge in mouth-watering strawberries, local liqueurs and delicious Norfolk apple juice, before returning home with a basket full of pâté, pickles, jams, breads and other temptations including fudge, seasonal fruit, seafood, frothy coffees and amazing cakes.
