Operations manager of Etiom Events Adam Simpson said: “We are really excited to be working with such a great variety of local producers who got behind this event from a very early stage. We are confident that visitors to the event will learn about the heritage of local produce, and there will be something for everyone at AFFA Fine.”
Etiom Events is supporting Instant Neighbour’s big Christmas Food Drive and the team is encouraging visitors to bring non-perishable food items and toiletries which they can donate to the food bank at the entrance to the event.
The event runs from 6pm – 10pm on Friday and noon until 10pm on Saturday.
