The award-winning Darlington Food and Drink Festival returns for 2019 3-6th May.
Last year’s event saw thousands of people enjoy fantastic food, music and sunshine in the market square and this year’s event promises to be just as good. A selection of the region’s finest food producers will be showcasing their culinary delights in the town centre. There’s the chance to sample delicious foods, pick up tips from food demonstrations and feast on food from around the world from street traders. Look out for the special marquee in the market square and stalls around the town centre.
This year’s event coincides with the ever-popular Jazz Festival so expect some great tunes around the town. Look out for evening jazz at Voodoo café on Friday 3rd and May the “Fourth” be with you on Saturday as Echo 3 café in Clarks yard celebrates Star Wars day, customers will be greeted by the Galatic Empire.
There’s jazz performances to suit all tastes on Saturday and Sunday afternoon until 4pm at Joseph Pease Place (free event).
The Jazz program continues in the market square marquee on Saturday evening from 7 pm. Sunday evening sees a change of pace with music from the Durham Alumni Big Band playing 1980s TV themed tunes from 6pm.
