SALISBURY'S new food and drink festival came to a close yesterday with stalls, live music, workshops, and something for all of the tastebuds.

Foodie Sunday took over the Market Place on Sunday, September 5, where food enthusiasts could try out new cuisines and flavours, or their favourite classics, sit back with a beverage from one of the bars or learn the secrets behind creating the perfect canapés and desserts.

Organised by Salisbury City Council, live music was also part of the festivities, with appearances from Ned Holland, King Louie and Westville Rocks.

Halfway through the day the city's finest bakers were put to the test as Salisbury Bake Off winners were revealed.

This event was part of Taste Salisbury - a first of its kind festival celebrating local and regional food and drink.

The ten-day spectacle, organised in partnership with Experience Salisbury, Salisbury BID and Salisbury City Council, brought a range of activities to the city in some of its most iconic venues and eateries.

Events included beer tasting, buffets, taste sessions and a teddy bear's picnic.

Confirming the festival will go ahead next year, Dan Collins, business manager at Salisbury BID, said the team was "thrilled" with the success of the events.

"This is the first year that Taste Salisbury has run and we have been thrilled with the response we have received, from both businesses that participated and the local community who took part and supported the events with great enthusiasm," he said.

"We look forward to building on the success on this year's festival and an even bigger Taste Salisbury 2022."
