You can join the celebration of food and drink from the nearby county of Rutland from Saturday when Rutland Food and Drink Week gets under way.
Organised by Discover Rutland to celebrate food and drink providers from across the county, visitors will be able to enjoy a wide range of culinary attractions, including tasting events, beer festivals, special offers and live music at local venues and much more.
As part of the celebrations, there will also be a chance to meet local chefs, bakers, brewers and farmers to find out more about their produce.
