Kent is to play host to a mouth-watering mixture of local treats during its annual Broadstairs Food Festival Spring Fair.

Now in its seventh year, this free festival takes place from 4th-6th April and will see guests flock to more than 50 stalls to celebrate Kent’s culinary heritage.

With a whole host of tempting treats and activities to enjoy, it’s clear to see why the organisers expect a huge crowd to descend on the popular seaside destination over the Easter weekend.
