The two-day event in August, organised by the town’s Business Improvement District (BID) group Ourburystedmunds, will feature a wide range of produce stalls and attractions as well as shows from celebrity and local chefs.

Galton Blackiston, from the Michelin-starred Morston Hall on the Norfolk coast, is confirmed for the first day of the event, on Sunday, August 30.

Ourburystedmunds chief executive, Mark Cordell, said: “We are delighted to have secured Galton for the opening day of the festival and he’s promising a great show in our Aga Rangemaster Theatre Kitchen.”

He said the town had a “growing and vibrant” restaurant scene and both the summer food and drink festival and the virtual one last month, the Fab Feb Food Fest, provided a “fantastic opportunity” to showcase how much was on offer.
