Reward Your Taste Buds!

Horsham District Foodies presents ‘EXPERIENCES’ in local food and drink!

There is no better place to be for food and drink lovers than the Horsham District. Whether you have a craving for carefully crafted cheeses, an avid appetite for ale or a taste for tantalising treats from traders in the local market, this year’s Horsham District Foodie ‘Experiences’ is where you will satisfy your most delicious desires.

Organised by Horsham District Foodies and Horsham District Council, this year we are breaking the mould by promoting the wonderful local food and drink this fabulous district has to offer over the year. From September 2019 to March 2020, in partnership with Taste West Sussex, we are promoting our businesses and communities through a variety of foodie experiences. We’ll do the same again from April to August 2020.

The Big Nibble will once again fill Horsham Town with fantastic aromas on the weekend of Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September. However, this year there won’t be a four week festival to follow but a longer promotion of events and activities, or EXPERIENCES, that best celebrate local food and drink!

Keep an eye on this website as more information becomes available over the summer.

Take a look at the short video below of the Symes Family as they take a foodie trip around Horsham District enjoying the delightful foods and drinks that the area has on offer.
