Hog Roast Wymondham
Those of you of a certain age will recall with great fondness the TV series Dad’s Army. Actually, those of any age can still watch it as it is repeated frequently on television. Well, the railway station that was used as Walmington on Sea station was actually the station for Wymondham, the lovely and historic market town in Norfolk. Maybe the whole cast of Dad’s Army were based on people in the town, we will never know, but it would be wonderful if they had been.
Wymondham has a certain Dad’s Army charm to it but this town has a troubled history, with a great fire tearing through the town in 1615. The Market Cross in the town replaced the one originally destroyed. But times move on and from long gone tragedies come modern day celebrations in the shape of bit birthdays bashes, anniversaries, christenings, weddings, corporate events and many other special occasions. Sadly, Wymondham, like many other places in the United Kingdom has suffered from a particular problem when it comes to event catering and that has been one of boring, lacklustre, dreary food. The sort of food you can so easily forget about. The sort of food that there is hardly anything special about. So it is very reassuring to see that Wymondham is doing something to change this, namely the rise of the hog roast Wymondham event.
That’s quite, hog roast. The very same hog roast that was adored back in Medieval times, that was cooked over a roaring fire and served up to royalty. Whatever happened that made the hog roast hire Wymondham event such a rarity, it is impossible to say but it seems that something has changed and the twenty three thousand people of this town are embracing the hog roast hire Wymondham caterer as a catering hero. It’s a wonderful turnaround in fortunes for hog roast but just why has it happened and what is so special about hog roast that it is making such a remarkable comeback?
