New for 2019!

Enjoy tasty treats from celebrity chefs and local and international kitchens in the heart of the city centre.

Michelin-starred chef Jean-Christophe Novelli is the headline act at the Sunderland Food and Drink Festival, taking over the city centre from Friday 21 – Sunday 23 June. 

Novelli, who has catered for royalty, heads of state, Hollywood stars and celebrities, will be cooking up a storm with some speciality dishes to inspire visitors.
 
He'll be joined by Katy Ashworth, from CBeebies and Dean Edwards, TV chef and author. 

Keel Square, High St West, Market Square and Blandford Street will be home to a variety of stalls offering local produce from local traders, street food and speciality food and drinks plus music and street entertainment. 

The heart of the event will be Keel Square, where a marquee will house free live cookery demonstrations and master classes throughout the weekend.

The event is free to attend and is funded and organised by Sunderland City Council,  Sunderland BID and RR Events.
