You came to Abergavenny. You shopped and sampled, saw some amazing culinary talent, learned a thing or two, absorbed the atmosphere, enjoyed the conviviality, and maybe (if you were at Party at the Castle) you danced in the light of the Dome as dusk gave way to night.

We love our town. We love our beautiful country. And we loved having you with us.

There have been particular challenges this year. Through no fault of their own, we had a few guest performers and exhibitors pull out and replacements come in at short notice. All I can say is that we’ve seen the best of people. Enthusiasm. Commitment. Generosity of spirit. We are enormously grateful for all that. 

On behalf of the Board and the Festival Team I’d like to thank you for supporting our wonderful food community. It has meant the world to them. Thank you also to our many sponsors and supporters who are very much part of the continuing AFF story. 

Let’s do it again in 2022.
