WORTHING and Adur’s first food and drink festival kicks off on Saturday (July 7).

With a nine-day programme of events, it is hoped it will get the tastebuds of residents across the towns tingling.

Worthing hosts the first festival event – an open air food market in Steyne Gardens – on Saturday, from 10am to 5pm, and Sunday, from 10am to 4pm.

There will also be a host of activities in South Street on both days, from 11am to around 4pm, with cookery demonstrations, children’s biscuit decorating competitions and wine tasting classes.

The festival concludes the following weekend, in Shoreham, where there will be a chilli festival from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, July 14 and 15, on Coronation Green.

On the Saturday, East Street will also host the Shoreham Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market from 9am to 1pm.
