New festival brings flavours of the world to Beverley

International Food and Craft Fair at Flemingate

A colourful new food festival will bring tastes from around the world to Flemingate next month.

The International Food and Craft Festival will offer a mouth-watering international selection of hot and cold food as well as unusual and quirky craft items and live music from local singers and musicians.

The weekend-long event will serve up authentic foodie delights ranging from continental cakes and pastries to flavoured cheeses, breads and olives.

The International Food and Craft Festival will run from Friday, June 8, to Sunday, June 10. Opening times are 10am to 6pm on Friday and Saturday and 10am-5pm on Sunday.

Sizzling hot street food options will include Greek Gyros, Spanish Paella, Polish Bigos and Shao Kao Chinese Chicken.

Our Events Manager, Jo Bridgeman, said: “The International Food and Craft Festival will be a great event for Beverley.

“The stalls will be located throughout the centre and there’ll be a stage for live music, which will give the event a real festival atmosphere. Beverley FM will also be broadcasting live from the event on the Saturday morning.

“We’re always keen to host events enjoyed by residents and visitors to Beverley alike and we’re sure this will prove very popular.

“The operators have an excellent reputation established over many years for organising events that enable people to experience flavours and crafts from many countries.”
