If you’re in Clitheroe this Saturday, there will be no escaping what has now become an annual feast of entertainment.
Clitheroe Food Festival takes over the whole of the town centre with artisan food and drink producers keen to tempt the hundreds of visitors it now attracts to taste test and buy their wares.
However, there are a couple of highlights that, being local, you may be able to reach before the hordes descend.
One is the Pudding Fest, which is an event running from 11-30am in St Mary’s Centre. This raises cash for the Friends of Chernobyl’s Children charity. Turn up, hand over £5 and you receive three generous portions of different puds to eat on the spot or take home plus a drink. It ends when the pudding runs out so get there in good time.
The other is a children’s event at Clitheroe Library. This will follow the theme of much-loved Very Hungry Caterpillar book with the story and activities followed by a delicious tea party. It’s free, but booking is a must.
