Stamford Feast – The Big Lunch 2012 was held on Stamford Meadows, south Lincolnshire, on Monday June 4.
Organiser Ali Hawley-Smith said: “It turned out to be even bigger and better than previous years, with bells on!” She estimates 12,000 visitors came to the event throughout the day, compared with last year’s 8,000.
Here are the pictures that Great Food Magazine took on the day.
