Sheffield Food Festival, various locations, 26-28 May

This year’s food festival lands in Sheffield over the late spring bank holiday and is bigger and better than ever. Now in its eighth year, find various food stalls dotted across the city centre from 10am until 6pm on Saturday 26, Sunday 27 and Monday 28 May.

Back for more this year is also the Eats, Treats & Beats Festival Village on Fargate. The stretched tent bar stays open every evening and will be surrounded by some fab street food vendors, for that perfect ‘night market’ feel. Opening for an additional day this year (on Thursday 26 May just the bar will be open), the village will be open from 11am on Friday 25 May, and will feature some excellent local beers from Sentinel Brewing Co and Stancill Brewery, as well as Mr D’Arcy’s Drink Emporium - your destination for gin, prosecco and cocktails throughout the food festival.

Find Smoke BBQ, The Gravy Train, Get Wurst, Wah Wahs, Fro by Joy, Mama Tornado and Canny Coffees all ready to feed you right up until 11pm (6pm on Monday) across the weekend.
