Foodies set to fill Maldon for dinner

Maldon’s main street will be transformed into a dining room for the Maldon Twilight Dinner on Saturday.

Almost 1000 people are expected to fill 120 tables for the event which showcases local food, produce and wine.

Maldon Eat Drink Events secretary Pamela Jewson said the event sold out quickly with foodies travelling from Perth, Sydney and even the United Kingdom for the dinner.

“It is great to see people coming from all over,” she said. “People love sitting under the stars, dining in the main street with beautiful, old buildings and a sunset. It’s a great atmosphere.”

Diners will receive a hamper filled main meals and locally-made goodies such as French bread, cheeses, chocolate and cherries.

Standing room tickets are still available for $25 with cafes and pubs serving food on the night.
