Huddersfield Food & Drink Festival 2011 starts today

Should you be visiting Huddersfield by train in the next four days you will probably be amazed to find outside the station a small town all by itself, as the 11th Huddersfield Food & Drink Festival opens its doors for business in St. Georges Square.

There is a mass of small tents (I am told its ok to call these tents!), selling everything from cheese to venison and from honey to curries plus continual demonstrations and sampling sessions, including workshops and entertainment for children.

Our local pubs and breweries have not been overlooked either as stalls from The Star, The Sportsman and The Kings Head rub shoulders with those from The Nook, Little Valley and Elland,all 6 selling real ale through handpumps and selling bottles as well.

So, if you have a bit of time on your hands, get down there and have a wander around, I am sure you will not be disappointed.

The festival runs until Sunday with late night opening on Friday and Saturday.
