Cottingham Food and Drink Festival -

Sunday 17th September

Cottingham prepares to celebrate region’s food and drink as festival returns for its fifth year

Supported by East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s EY Events team, the festival is a showcase of the best that Yorkshire’s food and drink producers have to offer.

Councillor Andy Burton, the council’s portfolio holder for economic investment, said: “The festival has proved extremely popular since it started in 2013 and has grown year-on-year, attracting around 25,000 people in 2016.

“The event was a finalist in the small tourism event category at the 2017 Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards and this year’s event will be the largest yet.”

Held in the Market Green, around 90 stalls will be selling products ranging from artisan breads, cured meats and cheeses to locally-produced beers and wines. There will also be the chance to try afternoon tea from Cottingham’s own Smith’s Deli in the civic hall.

The popular cookery demonstrations will also be back, with four of Yorkshire’s best chefs cooking throughout the day.

Ready Steady Cook and Saturday Kitchen star Brian Turner will return for a second year and will be joined by Great British Menu finalist Steph Moon, John Robinson from White’s of Beverley and Shoot the Bull’s Chris Harrison.

Those coming to the festival will also be able to use a free park and ride service, operating from Cottingham High School, in Harland Way, which will run throughout the day using a vintage EYMS bus.
