Fleetwood’s Marine Hall is the place to be for food lovers this weekend.

The venue is being transformed into a culinary paradise as it plays host to the Fylde Coast Food and Drink Festival on Sunday.

It takes place between 10am and 4pm and the big event – suitable for all the family – is free to enter.

Talented local chefs and producers are coming together to celebrate the region’s thriving food and drink scene.

This year’s event looks set to be bigger and better than last year’s festival with more than 50 exhibitors coming to the seafront venue.

There’s everything a 
foodie could wish for including cheeses, chutneys, meats, breads, cakes and biscuits, chocolates and pies. There will also be some tempting wines, real ales, specialist coffees and teas to try.

Hot food will also be cooking outside for lunch.

The talented chefs from Twelve Restaurant will be hosting cooking demonstrations on stage throughout the day, with recipes from the upcoming book Relish North West, due to be published in September.

Back by popular demand, festival favourite the amazing Cycle Graphic Splodge-a-Matic human-powered spin painting machine will be at the event.

There will also be a bouncy castle, rodeo ride and surfboard simulator as well as Queenie Beenie’s Crafty Cabin where children can enjoy some seaside craft.

Janet Heald, events and front of house manager at the Marine Hall said: “We are 
really excited about this year’s event.

“We’ve had an overwhelming response from exhibitors with lots of familiar faces 
returning from last year, plus a whole host of new businesses that we’re delighted to now be working with.”
