DETAILS of family fun at Clitheroe Food Festival next month have been revealed.

The free event on Saturday, August 10 will feature the plate-flipping and napkin-sculpting slapstick of the Comedy Waiters, the ‘daring deeds with dishes’ of Culinary Capers and the madcap comedy of gingham-clad Dinner Ladies Rita and Freda.

The popular Mad Science will set up a series of fun stations featuring demonstrations and hands-on activities throughout the town centre.

There will also be non-stop live music.

Cllr Stuart Carefoot, chairman of Ribble Valley Borough Council’s community services committee, said: “We have created a strong narrative around food over the years and established the Clitheroe Food Festival as one of the best in the UK.

“But as well as top-quality artisan produce, festival-goers can expect to find a feast of family fun and non-stop street entertainment.”

This year’s festival will showcase food from more than100 of the North-West’s best artisan producers, including Biltong beef, outdoor-reared Bowland pork, beetroot gravadlax, organic, cherry Bakewell gin and peanut butter hummus.
