WEST NORFOLK SEASONAL FOOD & DRINK FESTIVAL 2024

Having traded in Hunstanton since January 2014  we were only too aware of how the High Street (and surrounding areas) can remain eerily quiet even when the rest of the town is buzzing with visitors. Hunstanton is a much-loved seaside resort and yet many visitors are not aware of the many hidden treasures in the form of small independent businesses away from the promenade. As we are a member of Hunstanton's Advisory Group, and  it was felt that for not only the short but long term future of Hunstanton's retail business sector we wanted to create something which would achieve some key goals.

  • Give visitors a reason to visit parts of Hunstanton they wouldn't normally visit.
  • Encourage people to try something different.
  • Ecourage indpendents to come into town. To  introduce the beadth & depth of locally made Norfolk food & Drink.
  • To give residents and people living locally a reason to visit the High Street and to reengage with the towns small business community.
  • Discover an alternative range of products to those sold in the towns supermarkets.
  • Provide a great day out not only for visitors but for those living in town.
  • Deliver income for the local community which would help businesses recover and prosper.
  • Encourage new businesses into town.

SCOBYS
Alex and Sam have been mates since day one of university but hadn't seen each other for the best part of 10 years. They reconnected during lockdown and began experimenting with fermented foods. It quickly became an obsession as the number of questionable looking condiments in glass jars multiplied on their shelves. They were fermenting anything in sight - making hot sauce, sauerkraut, kimchi and drinks such as kvass, kefir and eventually, kombucha! Quite soon, all their other ferments took a back seat as they became fixated on playing around with the flavours and fizz of fermented tea. After 18 months of experimentation, some exploding bottles and failed attempts at scaling up the brewing process, in November 2023 they launched their own brand. https://scobys.co.uk/
