Pontefract Liquorice Festival
Sunday 9th July, 10am-4pm
This festival is held every year in July and celebrates the link which Pontefract holds between the small town and the sweet plant. As ever, there are fun things for all the family.
This July, the thriving market town of Otley in West Yorkshire will be the proud host of a lively celebration of food and drink.
For one day only (although you recognise some familiar faces from the regular Otley Farmers’ Market), 50 stalls will set up shop on the Market Square to show off their tasty wares. Expect to discover a delicious array of lovely local produce – only the finest will do – to test out and take home. What’s more, well-loved local chefs will be holding court in the cookery theatre, plus food and wine tastings and for nibbles and tipples. One thing’s for sure: you won’t leave with an empty stomach.
It’s not all about the food, though – there’ll be live music, street performers and family entertainment, too. What more could you want from a day out?
Held at Funkirk Farm, Carleton, Near Skipton. With Yorkshire born James Martin as the event patron, this is an event not to be missed! Saturday 22nd July – Sunday 23rd July
