Festival presents a great opportunity for our food and drink producers and retailers to build their businesses and become established and recognised across the region, whilst maximising on the benefits Hull 2017 brings with added interest and visitor numbers.

“We’re excited that we’ve added a greater variety of food stalls, seeing the event expand fully into Queen’s Gardens.”
