THOUSANDS of people descended on a food festival, sampling a range of delicious bites to eat.

Thame Food Festival saw more than 100 artisan food and hot street food producers serve up items including cheeses, breads, Indian style fish and chips, and pizzas.

About 15,000 people made it to the two-day event, which was cancelled last year.

Lotte Duncan, organiser of the event, said: “I am still reeling from the weekend. This was a tough one to put on with everything that has gone on over the last 18 months.

“However, seeing so many people coming out and supporting all the wonderful artisan producers and street food vendors made all that hard work and constant shifting of plans worth it, particularly as our independent producers need our support now more than ever.”

In addition to the food was live music by Thame Music Academy, and a range of activities for children, including rugby taster sessions with Chinnor Rugby Club, free circus workshops, face painting, and archery with local charity, Thomley.
