The event will now be a three-day festival instead of two during the May Bank Holiday.

The seventh year of the free festival, which takes place at Lancaster Leisure Park on Wyresdale Road, sees it growing in response to increasing exhibitor and visitor expectation.

Over the three days (Saturday May 5-7 from noon-6pm) more than 50 food and drink producers will showcase their work.

Chris Duffy, events manager at Lancaster Brewery, said: “It’s incredible how popular the festival has become, so it’s great to be able to offer more to local ‘regulars’ and new visitors alike.

“By spreading the event over three days, it gives people more space and flexibility to enjoy everything at their leisure over the whole Bank Holiday weekend, and not miss out on anything!”
