Most Popular Posts of 2015 | Poppy alla Norma

With 2015 almost at a close, it seems like the perfect time to review my year of blogging on Poppy alla Norma. There have been 52 blog posts uploaded in the last 12 months, and I thoroughly enjoyed writing all of them – taking and editing the photographs, not so much…

It’s crazy to think that complete strangers from all over the world are interested in reading what I have to write on my li’l corner of the internet, so I just want to thank each and every one of you who read Poppy alla Norma, leave comments and follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Bloglovin’ and Pinterest. It’s so lovely to know that people like you actually read this blog, and I truly appreciate every single view, comment and share on social media. The blogging community is wonderful, and I’ve spoken to so many lovely people I otherwise would have never have met. This blog has been such a big part of my year, and I hope it continues for many years to come.

Anyways, enough of the mushy stuff, let’s have a look at the most popular posts on Poppy alla Norma from the past year!

The Bolton Food & Drink Festival 2015

The Bolton Food & Drink Festival 2015

If you don’t have any plans for Bank Holiday Monday and you’re in the Greater Manchester/Lancashire area, you have the perfect opportunity to spend your day surrounded by delicious smelling street food, artisan treats, live music, entertainment and more – that’s right, the Bolton Food & Drink Festival is back and it’s better than ever!

With even more stalls than last year and guest appearances from celebrity chefs including John Torode, James Martin and Lisa Faulkner, the Bolton Food & Drink Festival is in full swing and it’s absolutely brilliant. I was lucky enough to visit today and sample the fine food and drink on offer in Bolton, and it was the perfect way to spend a weekend – it was so fun in fact that I’ll be returning tomorrow to enjoy the final day!

So, now to answer the question I’m sure you’re all asking… “What did you eat?”

Well, please allow me to show you!
