WITH less than two months to go until The Yorkshire Dales Food and Drink Festival at Funkirk Farm in Skipton, the entertainment line-up will provide a rocking weekend for visitors.

In the entertainment tent on Saturday, July 22, visitors can see the Ed Sheeran Experience or spend Sunday, July 23, afternoon watching the Home Town Glory Adele tribute perform Adele’s classic ballads.

These two acts are supported throughout the weekend by a range of local Yorkshire musicians including The Keatings, Steph Baker and Glusburn teen Niamh Mirfield.

Not only does the event have live music but headliner celebrity chefs John Torode and James Martin will be showing off their cooking skills in the big top arena for celebrity ticket holders.

With a standard ticket, people can join in with free workshops and demonstrations and local chefs will be giving free demonstrations in the local chef arena all weekend.

All of the workshops will be pre-bookable to ticket holders from July 1, so people are encouraged to buy tickets now.

There will be plenty of activities for children too. Along with the vintage fun fair, Pets at Home will be there with their petting farm.

PTAs from Embsay and Boyle and Petyt Primary Schools will provide activities to join in with including arts and crafts, biscuit decorating and face painting. Then on Sunday there will be tractors for children to sit in and have their photos taken.

As well as the activities, there will be over 200 food and drink exhibitors to buy breakfast, dinner, tea and treats to take home.

People can stay for the whole weekend with Friday and Saturday onsite camping from £24 per pitch or bring a caravan from £36 per pitch.

A free bus will also be running from Skipton Railway Station and Skipton High Street to the festival.

This year's on site charity car park is in aid of Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
