Scar­bor­ough’s first-ever food and drink fes­ti­val will be tak­ing place this week­end with thou­sands of peo­ple ex­pected.

The free fes­ti­val will fea­ture cook­ery demon­stra­tions and a number of stalls selling lo­cal pro­duce.

It has been or­gan­ised by The Scar­bor­ough News and The York­shire Post Events Teams along­side Scar­bor­ough Coun­cil and Wel­come to York­shire and spon­sored by Scar­bor­ough TEC.

Fi­ley-born James Macken­zie, the chef/pa­tron of the Miche­lin starred Pipe & Glass Inn, near Bev­er­ley, is just one of those tak­ing part.

Scar­bor­ough’s West Pier will be trans­formed into a col­lec­tion of stands, stalls and demon­stra­tion places show­cas­ing the finest lo­cal pro­duce and tal­ents of the chefs.

Lisa Brad­bury, our re­gional events and mer­chan­dise man­ager, said: “We’re are de­lighted to be or­gan­is­ing the first Scar­bor­ough Food & Drink fes­ti­val.

“We have a live demo kitchen as part of the week­end’s fes­tiv­i­ties hosted by Stephanie Moon.”

Janet Dea­con, tourism and cor­po­rate mar­ket­ing man­ager for Scar­bor­ough Coun­cil and area di­rec­tor for Wel­come to York­shire, said: “The York­shire coast is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a taste rev­o­lu­tion with a whole range of new prod­ucts be­ing de­vel­oped for us all to taste, from gin and whiskey dis­till-

eries and mi­cro brew­eries to award win­ning fine din­ing restau­rants and food out­lets.

“The Scar­bor­ough Food & Drink Fes­ti­val will add another su­perb event to our year­round cal­en­dar of events and fes­ti­vals and en­able us to

show­case the best of what’s on of­fer along the York­shire Coast and fur­ther afield”.

Cllr He­len Mal­lory, deputy leader of Scar­bor­ough Coun­cil, said: “We are de­lighted to be work­ing in partnership with The Scar­bor­ough News

and York­shire Post to bring the Scar­bor­ough Food & Drink Fes­ti­val to Scar­bor­ough. Many lo­cal food and drink pro­duc­ers are in­spired by the re­gion’s bounty of best of Bri­tish pro­duce, fresh from land and sea and this event will pro­vide

them with an ideal op­por­tu­nity to show­case their prod­ucts to vis­i­tors and res­i­dents all along the York­shire Coast.”

One of the key aims of the event is to pro­mote lo­cal prod­ucts, such as seafood, which is what Gra­ham Stork of GWS

Seafoods does in his busi­ness.

He said: “We’re try­ing to pro­mote the use of lob­ster and crab from our own shores. The fresher the prod­uct, the bet­ter the taste.”
