Lancaster Food and Drink Festival gears up for May bank holiday bonanza

The 7th Lancaster Food and Drink Festival (in association with Budweiser Budvar) takes place this May bank holiday (5th – 7th May) as it expands to three full days across the weekend.

The free festival has grown in response to increasing exhibitor and visitor enthusiasm alike year on year, as it returns to Lancaster Leisure Park on Wyresdale Road.

Over the three days, over 50 high quality food and drink producers will create a foodie paradise in the grounds of the Lancaster Brewery garden at the Leisure Park.

Chris Duffy, Events Manager at Lancaster Brewery, said: “It’s incredible how popular the festival has become, so it’s great to be able to offer more to local ‘regulars’ and new visitors alike, who might have heard Lancaster featured on several BBC Radio 4 food programmes in the last year. By spreading the event over three days, it gives people more space and flexibility to enjoy everything at their leisure over the whole Bank Holiday weekend, and not miss out on anything!”
