Its that time of year again, when another food festival hits the medieval town of Rye, East Sussex and this time its Wild Boar!
This foodie delight is now in its 7th year and has grown in popularity since it started, not only attracting lots of visitors but growing in eating establishments keen to get involved and add their own twist. Its a chance for the restaurants to showcase their wild boar treats and many extend the menu to include gamey delights including, Partridge, Pheasant, Rabbit, Venison and Mallard.
The festival lasts a week and there are lots events taking place across the town, all with a ‘wild boar’ theme but something for all the family, from ‘Wild Boar Hog Hunt’, art exhibitions, live music and even a guided ghost walk tour of Rye. To see the full list of events visit their website
With so much going on from the 21st to 29th October, I would highly recommend you stay for longe
r and not only indulge in the foodie fairs but get to know this pretty, quaint town, steeped in history and charm (pictured above). Autumn is a great time to visit this corner of East Sussex, with the beautiful Camber Sands (pictured below) just 3 miles away, a stunning beach which you can enjoy almost to yourself for a bracing walk at this time of year or the award winning Rye Nature Reserve close by. Visit the lovely houses and gardens and enjoy the Autumn colours as the leaves fall.
