A STREET food festival will be held in Lyme Regis this May.
The Dorset Street Food Festival, organised by Street Food Warehouse, will be held on Marine Parade over the Bank Holiday weekend of May 26 to 28, adding to Lyme’s ever-expanding calendar of festivals.
The event promises a weekend of “fantastic fresh food and delicious drinks”, with an array of street food on offer – from stone-baked pizza to Pad Thai, sugary churros to gourmet burgers.
Pakora Pod, Sam and The Frying Machine, Urban Cheesecake and Monte Forte Pizza are just some of the street food vendors confirmed to be attending the event taking place on Marine Parade, with many other local and national vendors yet to be announced.
Catering to all with vegan, gluten free and vegetarian vendors, there will be something for everyone.
The event will be open from 12noon to 10pm each day and tickets are free to book at http://bit.ly/2FzHXul
Event organiser Tudor Barber said: “There is nothing like this event in Lyme Regis and we are really pleased and excited to bringing all the seductive smells and tastes of Street Food Warehouse to the beautiful Dorset coast.”
The food festival is set to take place on the same weekend as Jazz Jurassica – previously known as Lyme Regis Jazz & Blues Weekend.
Deputy town clerk Mark Green said: “Officers have indicated their support for the principle of a street food festival in Lyme Regis. A meeting will be organised in the next few days between the already permitted Lyme Regis Jazz Festival and Dorset Street Food Festival to determine how the two events might take place side by side.”
