More than 17,000 people turned out to taste an array of artisan produce at Cheam's second food and drink festival.

Cheam Celebration of Food and Drink brought over a hundred stalls to Cheam Park on Sunday, offering the public free access to independent sellers from across the region.

On top this, there were hand picked street food vendors from 19 countries, six bars, two stages of live music and a range of activities for all the family.

Looking to build on this year's success, event organiser Mike Quinton said: “2020 is our 3rd year anniversary and we want to make it special.

"This event is for the people who attend and we have listened to and taken onboard their comments from this year.

"2020 will see the introduction of mobile drinks stations, water cubes, the Shaded Garden where families can relax, more street food vendors, more produce, more bars, a chef demonstration tent, more children's activities, some amazing bands and of course the guaranteed family friendly atmosphere.”

Mr Quinton launched the event in an effort to "reunite" the community, attracting 8000 last year.

Following this year's success, Cheam Celebration of Food and Drink has been entered into the UK Festival Awards in the best small festival and best new festival categories.
