Over 1,000 people are expected to attend the second annual Northern Lincolnshire Food and Drink festival later this month.

The event – held at The Baths Hall in conjunction with celebrity chef Colin McGurran and his restaurants Winteringham Fields and The Hope & Anchor – returns for a second year on Sunday, July 17.

This year’s festival, which will run between 11am and 4pm, features exhibitions, competitions and a very special educational and interactive Culinary Kids Zone where youngsters will be able to get messy and make their own sausages courtesy of The Pink Pig.

Almost 30 trade stands will be in attendance on the day, including medieval and historic food from Forgotten Fare, Hope and Glory Coffee, Scunthorpe Beekeepers’ Society and Jamie’s Sweet Emporium. There will also be exotic foods available with Klumpe serving Lithuanian dishes and Mr Huda selling his famous curry pastes.

In the venue’s auditorium there will be a number of events taking place over the course of the day, including presentations by Colin McGurran, a plum bread competition and workshops eateries from across the area.

A spokesman for The Baths Hall said: “Last year saw over 1,000 people attend the inaugural event and this year’s festival will be even bigger and better. We have more stalls attending, more exhibitions taking place and our Kids Zone – thanks to Sally Jackson and The Pink Pig – will have even more for young people to do. It’s going to be another fantastic day.”

Also attending the event will be Uncle Henry’s, Propa Pies, Crunchy Critters, M&J Seafood, Message in a Bottle, Roe’s Farm Dairy and many more.

Entry to the event is free. Tickets are not required – just turn up on the day. Further information Click here http://www.bathshall.co.uk
