    I live in Dorking road and was totally unaware that the Epsom Food & Drink Festival was on today. It was only by chance that my wife and I came across it. The festival was really good with some very good stalls. It seemed to be a good family event. This is something that should be expanded and held every year. My major complaint is that the advertising was appalling. There need to be large banners at the Dorking Road and Ashley Road entrances that people in cars or walking by can see and read (the same applies to other events held in the town). It is no use putting an A4 size piece of paper on a notice board that nobody reads or in local rags that don't get delivered or read.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for getting in touch. The Epsom Food & Drink Festival is not a Council organised event and we're not responsible for the advertising or running of this event. For more information please see:
