A two-week celebration of local produce, artisan treats and independent businesses will swing into action in Harleston this weekend.
The town will kick-off the Diss and Harleston Food and Drink Festival on Sunday. It will host a week of events which will tickle the taste buds before the festival makes its way to Diss.
Harleston's highlights include special tasting sessions in a range of the town's shops and cafes, and demonstrations including four special sessions at the Pod - where people will be able to make their own chocolate treats.
And the Moveable Feast will enable people to have a three-course dinner in three restaurants in one night.
The week will culminate with the Taste of Harleston on October 8 from 9am to 3.30pm.

Nicky Stainton, of Harleton's Future, said: 'Local businesses are keen to get involved and we had such a successful event last October that we will build on that to offer more activities and attract even more people to the town.'
