Warwick Thai Festival.

Last night at Warwick Castle it was proms at the castle and in the arm we were treated to the display by a Spitfire. Unfortunately it was raining lightly, but never the less I stood outside and watched the majestic plane swooping across the sky.

Today it was the turn of the Thai Festival.

With the Warwick Thai Festival East meets West once again as the popular annual event returns to the town centre, with Market Place filled with the spiced aromas of eastern cooking and music of the orient. It was our fist visit to the event and we will definitely go again.

The Mayoress officially opened the festival, having walked from the Castle up Swan Street and into the Market Square, where crowds had gathered to join in with the Thai celebrations.

Warwick has a long association with Thailand after helping with the tsunami appeal and in 2012 the Rotary Club was able to provide an extra dialysis machine.

During the day there was to be cookery classes, Thai Boxing and dancing with music also thrown in and of course lots of food.

There were plenty of craft stalls.

The food stalls smelt amazing, so amazing that we had lunch from one of them. Keith had Thai Green Curry with noodles and I had Chicken and Cashew Nuts with Rice, both meals were £5 and extremely filling. If you had never eaten Thai food before, it was a great way to sample the food.

There was something for everyone and none of it overly expensive, which makes a nice change when going to a festival. By the time we were ready to come home the Market Place was heaving with people, children and dogs. Why on earth you would want to take your dog to something like this I have no idea. They would have been much happier at home.
