Visitors to Stamford were treated to a wealth of food, drink and music on the Meadows yesterday (Sunday).

Traders and bands combined to produce a great atmosphere in the sun at Stamford Feast and Party on the Point.

The food festival kicked off early on, with visitors able to sample fine food and drink produced in the region.

And as the sun came out the music began, with several bands and musicians keeping the crowds entertained.

This year’s event was organised by Stamford Town Council for the first time.

Events committee chairman Sue Sandall said there had been a few teething problems but overall the day was a great success.

She added: “The sun shone in the afternoon and there were a lot of people enjoying the event.

“The bands started earlier this year and a lot of people came down.

“Families were sitting on the grass listening to the music and having something nice to eat.”

The event was the first organised by the town council’s newly-formed events committee.

Coun Sandall said: “There are one or two things we could change but we are looking to carry it on next year.

“On the whole it was a successful day and it brought people to the town.

“It gives us confidence as a committee going forward.”

Coun Sandall added that the reception from traders had been excellent and the committee were already talking to them about Stamford Christmas Festival.

She said: “There was so much for people to try and taste. The traders were very good. They were all giving out samples.”
