There are three food festivals taking place in late September and October

Crowning a busy summer of culinary celebrations, Hertford's three-day 2019 Food and Drink Festival takes place this month, with Watford's first Vegan Festival close behind.

Highlights of the Hertford event from October 11-13 include the Hertford Castle Beer and World Food Festival, street food markets, special activities at cafés, bars and restaurants, plus foodie promotions and cookery demonstrations. More chefs will be in action at the Watford gathering on October 12 at the Bushey Academy along with samples of vegan dishes and talks on nutrition and the vegan lifestyle.

Meanwhile, in St Albans on September 29 you can catch the city's annual Feastival from midday-6pm, when the main street will be closed to traffic for what organisers say is an afternoon of free foodie fun for all the family. Highlights include a cookery theatre with live demonstrations by St Albans-based chefs, dozens of street food stalls and special activities for children.
