TIDWORTH may be best known for its military connection and polo but it is also hoping to gain some respect as a place to enjoy good food.

On 26 July the town will be holding its own food festival on the field at the Community Centre in Wylye Road.

Organisers at Tidworth Town Council say that more than 40 stallholders will be there providing a huge variety of tastes and types for people to enjoy.

During the afternoon Liam Abram, from Showoff Dance, will be coordinating an afternoon of family entertainment by dancers of his school.
