Virtual Big Nibble 2020
The Big Nibble is our month-long food festival, held every September. This year, we're going virtual and celebrating all that Horsham District's food and drink scene has to offer online.
We'll be sharing recipes from top local chefs, online trails, business videos and recipes, a unique competition and more.
Each week has a different foodie theme, and we can't wait to get started.
- Week 1 (September 4-10): Horsham Markets and their suppliers
- Week 2 (September 11-17): Future Food and Sustainability
- Week 3 (September 18-24): Local produce
- Week 4 (September 25-30): International Food Festival
Another new addition for this year is our charity partner. We'll be supporting Horsham District Foodbank throughout the festival.

Support Horsham District Foodbank
Our Charity Partner for this year's Big Nibble is Horsham District Foodbank. Since the start of the pandemic the team have delivered nearly 4000 emergency food parcels, and for the first time ever, they are struggling to meet demand for food.
Every donation of food or money contributes enormously to keeping the Foodbank running. To help the charity's urgent appeal, there will be donation stations at Horsham Markets on Saturday 5 September. Please drop by and donate what you can.
