A 'FOODIE trail' has been launched in Skipton in the run up to this month's Yorkshire Dales Food and Drink Festival.

Most of the town's pubs, cafes, restaurants, delicatessens and butchers have signed up to the trail, a partnership between the festival and Skipton BID.

And it its hoped people will log on to the festival website and find out all about the many delicious and different foodie treats on offer.

The two day festival takes place at Funkirk Farm, off the A59 between Skipton and Broughton, on Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23.

It will include cooking demonstrations from top chefs, James Martin and John Torode, as well as a number of other events and entertainment for all the family.
