Spirit of Harborough event returns for its second year

The Spirit of Harborough event will return for its second year on Saturday 26 May 2018, celebrating the wonderful range of local artisan alcohol and food producers.

Working even more closely this year with the now established ‘Taste Harborough’ initiative, Market Harborough will once again turn into a place of culinary discovery as the Taste Harborough Taste Trail takes over the town. Twice as big as last year, the town-wide trail will see people purchase a map and travel around the town to discover the wonderful local food and drink available.

To accompany the Taste Trail, there will also be a food and drink producers market on the Town Square offering the very best produce from across the area. Locally-produced cider, beer and wine will be on show, along with jams, coffee, breads, and much more. Over 40 businesses are collaborating on the day, meaning that there is something for everyone and a great out for all of the family.

Spirit of Harborough 2018 has been developed and co-ordinated by a partnership between Leicestershire Promotions and Harborough District Council, with support from Taste Harborough and a group of local alcohol and food producers.

Martin Peters, Chief Executive of Leicestershire Promotions said: “We’re delighted to work with Harborough District Council on the second annual Spirit of Harborough event. Market Harborough and the surrounding area have a growing number of high quality food and drink producers. Events such as this provide an ideal opportunity for residents and visitors from further afield to come and sample some of this fantastic produce.”

Leicestershire Promotions and Harborough District Council have formed a strategic partnership focused on promoting and developing the tourism offer in the district of Harborough. The partnership is supported by the employment of a dedicated Tourism Executive to work with local businesses and increase the volume and value from the local visitor economy.
