There will be more than 100 food and drink stalls selling a host of gastronomic delights and artisan produce from across the region and beyond. Plus, there will be live music and children’s activities to entertain the crowds throughout the weekend.

On Saturday, you can watch Gregg Wallace taking to the kitchen doing free cookery demonstrations throughout the day as well as signings of his latest book Italian Family Cookbook.
