THE finishing touches are being applied to the 5th Saltburn Food Festival which is set to take over the town on Sunday.

More than 100 stalls are expected to turn up to sell their local wares and the festival is also blossoming into the rest of the town centre for the first time.

With a huge variety of locally produced food, drink and craft stalls transforming the town into a 'food' village for a day packed full of events for all the family to enjoy.

The Festival’s Live Cookery Theatre sees an incredibly tasty mix of TV and award-winning chefs, including Debbie Raw from BBC2’s Further Back in Time for Dinner and Steph Moon from BBC2’s Great British Menu.

People can also enjoy a bustling street market with more than 100 of the best local food producers from the North East & North Yorkshire, world street food, vegetarian and vegan specials, outdoor dining and picnic areas, street theatre, and a busier than ever Festival Fringe.

Festival organiser Lorna Jackson said: “Saltburn is becoming increasingly famous for its array of fantastic independent shops and businesses and, as we’ve been able to blossom into the rest of the town centre for the first time, it’s great that so many of them are joining in the Festival fun this year.

“Visitors coming into the town for the day will love what they see, and I know they’ll enjoy finding their brand new favourite shop and keep coming back throughout the year too.”

As well as the stallholders coming to town, local businesses are also embracing the festival.

Christina Easton, of The LillianDaph Store, said: "“It’s always great to see so many people in town, with an amazing atmosphere on the day. It’s not only great for local food, but positive for other local businesses too.

“It gives the whole town a chance to shine, and I’m looking forward to welcoming people here at our store and to seeing people again right throughout the year.”

The festival takes place on Sunday, July 30 between 10am-6pm.

Admission is free and there is park and ride facilities available for visitors running from Guisborough’s Fountain Street car park and on the outskirts of Saltburn at both the former council Coach Park, opposite Saltburn Golf Club on Saltburn Lane, and the nearby car park of Saltburn Learning Campus.
