food fest Published Friday, 03 August 2018

The Fylde Coast Food and Drink Festival is back at Marine Hall for its 6th year on Sunday 12 August. Come along between 10am and 4pm for a delicious day out for all the family – entry is free and there’s plenty to buy and try!

There’s everything a foodie could wish for including cheeses, chutneys, meats, cakes, chocolates, jams, pies, puddings and much more. There are also some tempting wines to taste and buy, delicious ciders, fruity gins, specialist coffees, traditional teas and some delicious artisan cordials. We now welcome vegan and gluten free food too such as dairy free ice cream, gluten free garlic breads and health food supplements!

Plus, there’s plenty of hot food cooking outside for lunch from fish and chips by the seaside, hot sausage sandwiches to grilled cheese or for those who like spice there’s Mexican street food - you’ll be spoilt for choice. For those with a sweet tooth there are lots of hot desserts baking too with freshly made hot churros, chocolate brownies and sticky toffee flapjacks or if that doesn’t take your fancy there’s various ice creams and scrummy sundaes to choose from.

There will be live performances throughout the day from the Thornton Cleveleys Brass band outside in the Marine Hall gardens at 12.15pm, 1.45pm and 3.15pm.

Lynne Bowen portfolio holder for Leisure, Health and Community Engagement at Wyre Council comments “We are very excited about this year’s event in its 6th year. We’ve had an overwhelming response from exhibitors with a whole host of new businesses that we’re delighted to now be working with. This year’s event has focused on the healthy vegan and gluten free food range so we are very pleased that we have this to offer. The Fylde Coast Food and Drink Festival is the perfect event for all the family and to enjoy tasty treats.”
