AN array of regional produce will tickle the taste buds of food and drink lovers this weekend.

The second Taste of Teesdale festival takes place at Raby Castle, near Staindrop, in County Durham, on Sunday, with stalls selling items such as cheese, sausages, puddings, pies, preserves, honey, fish, bread, sweet treats and wine.

There will also be crafts for children, the Farmyard Flyer – a double-decker bus with farm animals, duck racing and dog training.

Organisers assured visitors travelling to the event that the road between Barnard Castle and Staindrop is not affected by the Marie Curie Cancer Care Etape Pennines cycle challenge, which has caused several road closures around Barnard Castle and rural parts of Teesdale, that day.

Entry is £6 per vehicle, including access to the castle's gardens.

The event runs from 10am to 4pm.
