Foodies will be in their element as cookery demonstration programmes accompany the festival, offering inside information on how produce is made and how to improve your own culinary skills.
This year, when the festival comes to town on Saturday 4th May, to ensure that the event reaches its full potential, following a high footfall in 2012, which was aided by the Olympic Torch Relay, celebrity chef Jean Christophe Novelli will be onsite for the duration of the event to add some European culinary skills into the mix.
