A TASTY event that attracts culinary connoisseurs from across the south east will open at a beauty spot near Petersfield this weekend.

Thousands of people are expected are to head to Queen Elizabeth Country Park for the Petersfield Festival of Food and Drink.

There should be something for everyone at the mouthwatering event, with more than 80 stalls selling a range of niche and tasty products.

Further highlights include live music throughout the week, a bouncy castle, zorbing, and the results of the Petersfield Food Awards 2013.

This year's event has been organised by Michael Wait, of Football For Cancer, and will coincide with the annual Rosemary Ramble.
