The event, in the St Mary’s Close car park, featured Cinnamon Travelling Cafe, Smoke Shack, Nacho Reina and GoGo Gogi Gui.

Choux Stopper, IS Cream, The Craft Beer Shop and the Pitch & Eat Prosecco Bar also pitched up.

“We were delighted – it was a really good turnout,” Sophie said. “It was a bit touch and go with the weather but everyone really enjoyed it.”

The aim is to hold the mini food festival every few months with a special Christmas event already in the pipeline.
