Tynemouth Food Festival returned for a second helping of some of the North’s finest produce last week.
Food lovers were treated to a double-sized helping of tasty treats at the weekend as the celebration of the region’s culinary heritage brought together local chefs and producers. Tynemouth was transformed into a delicious treasure trove as around 40 local producers gathered alongside street food vendors serving freshly cooked dishes from across the globe. Despite the rain, thousands of visitors flocked to the event at the weekend.
The festival, organised by the Tynemouth Business Forum with the support of The Co-operative Membership, North Tyneside Council, Brannen and Partners and King’s School, also included a week-long beer festival at Tynemotuh’s Cumberland Arms and three nights of pop-up restaurants at the village’s King’s School from teams at The Feathers Inn, Hedley-on-the-Hill, Northumberland, and Newcastle’s Blackfriars, finishing off with a special gala night from former North East Chef of the Year, David Kennedy.
