THERE was a big turnout for the opening of the Hereford Food Festival.

More than 4,000 visited Hereford Racecourse on Saturday for the opening day of the two-day event, and there were hundred more again today.

The event showcased the best food and drink from across the county.

There will be more than 100 food and drink vendors, as well as craft stalls, live music and activities for children.

Organisers had asked for donations to the Little Princess Trust, their charity partner this year.

The charity provides real-hair wigs to people under 24 who have sadly lost their own hair through cancer treatment and other medical conditions.
