Sheffield food lovers have plenty to get their teeth into this bank holiday weekend - and a new cheese festival has also been added to the city's social calendar.
Sheffield Food Festival begins on Saturday with an action-packed schedule for its debut under new management - see page 20 of this week’s Telegraph for more - and runs until Monday. Seven Hills WI have even created a raspberry and gin jam to sell at the festival for Mental Health Action Group Sheffield.
The Street City food festival off Ecclesall Road is returning over the same days, with 1980s themed entertainment , fancy dress and the Kell Brook fight shown on screens. On Bank Holiday Monday, Trafalgar Warehouse in the city centre is also hosting pop up dining from 3pm with a bar, music, plus street food.
