Lovers of fine dining can now get out and enjoy two weeks of taste heaven, starting with a food and drink market in Abbey End.
Foodie Fortnight will kick off on Saturday October 5 for the second year in a row in the hope of drawing people in to show off Kenilworth’s shops, bars and restaurants.
Organised by the Town Centre Partnership, the two-week long event will see a host of competitions, stalls, food deals and promotions and even a bake off to draw in the crowds.
And to start things off, Saturday’s Fine Food and Drink market will run from midday with music, entertainment and the finest food on offer.
Zoë Court, town centre manager who is behind the plans, said it was “very exciting” to be entering into their second event and that this year there is even more on offer.
“We have got loads going on this month and it is really all about just giving a platform for our businesses to show off what they can offer,” she said.
“We have got as many food and drink businesses on board as possible and the pudding trail which is very exciting.”
The pudding trail runs across the whole fortnight with six businesses offering puddings for £1. Try all six, vote for your favourite and be in with the chance to win £100 to spend in the town.
The trail starts at The Almanack on October 5, then heads to Escape Cafe, Ardens, Sweet As, Virgins and Castle and finishes at Time for Tea during the final weekend. Pick up a leaflet from participating businesses and get tasting to collect your stamps.
And events continue with a Foodie Theatre on October 12 where a marquee in Abbey End will offer demonstrations from a range of businesses.
There is still chance to enter the very first Bake Off which will be held on October 13 to test the kitchen skills of the town’s very best bakers.
Categories include under 12s, best decoration, best taste and icing and there is still time to enter by emailing email@example.com or contacting Zoë Court on 456018.
And to round it all off, the first Market and Music day in High Street on October 19 will offer a continental market through the afternoon.
To make way for the markets, Warwick Road will be closed from the Sainsbury’s junction to Abbey End on Saturday from 6am until 9pm and bus diversions are in place.
For the final market, High Street will be closed from the Malthouse Lane junction from midday to 8pm.
