York’s intensive ten day festival is set to hit the city centre once again this September.

The event being held across various venues throughout the city aims to promote local food producers, independent restaurants and retailers based in Yorkshire.

This years theme is Food in words and pictures, and it can be seen through the many events being put on at the festival.

The festival is made up of various events which suit a range of audiences.

The non profit organisation has concentrated time to make sure children and young people are encouraged and engaged throughout the events.

This will include the schools programme where children from York Primary School’s can attend workshops and demonstrations with local producers and chefs.

There will be a Young Chefs Competition giving  the opportunity for under 18’s to be awarded with the accolade of Young chef of the year.
