NINETY of Lancashire's finest producers will have their wares on display at Clitheroe’s annual food festival tomorrow.

The free event will feature a huge array of delicacies for sale including organic dairy products, meat from traditional Lancashire breeds, Asian treats, Thai pies, Biltong beef and fresh fruit and vegetables.

The 90-plus producers have been screened for quality and provenance.

This year’s festival features several with a national reputation, including Baxter’s Potted Shrimps, Choc Amor, Dewlay Cheesemakers, Fatjax Chutney, Mr Fitzpatrick’s Vintage Cordials, Leagram Organic Dairy and R. S. Ireland’s Black Puddings.

There are still a few tickets left for a series of tasting-talks in the Ribble Valley Civic Suite by Barrica Wines of Botany Bay, international chocolatier Choc Amor of Mawdesley and Cuckoo Gin producer Brindle Distillery.

Entertainment in Castle Street and King Street will include a celebration of 60s and 70s food by Kitsch Kafé and plate-flipping slapstick from the Comedy Waiters.

Mad Science will be setting up fun stations on Clitheroe Market while King Street will host non-stop music.

Simon Hore, chairman of Ribble Valley Council’s community services committee, said: “The Clitheroe Food Festival is one of Lancashire’s most popular events and people will find plenty to whet their appetite this year.”
