Northern Food and Drink Virtual Festival organiser Sean Noonan

BUSINESSES in the region are set to participate in a virtual food and drink festival this weekend.

 East Yorkshire companies Soanes Poultry and Wold Top Brewery will join their North Yorkshire neighbours Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery and Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil at the Northern Food and Drink Virtual Festival that has been organised by furloughed Lancashire chef, Sean Noonan.

 The festival will run as a Facebook event on 24th and 25th May and will feature a series of cookery demonstrations on a virtual stage and themed tents with producers telling their stories and promoting their goods. Soanes Poultry and Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil will be in the Food and Drink tent, Wold Top in the Beer tent and Spirit of Yorkshire in the Spirits tent. Visitors to the festival can enter each tent by joining the respective Facebook group. The event will also have talks and master classes from leading industry professionals.

 Mr Noonan is organising the festival with Jacky Moss from Creative Agenda and Craig Sherrington, National Finalist in the 2018 Great British Menu. He said: "The Northern Food and Drink Virtual Festival is a brand new event  to support and showcase northern producers, distributors and some of the great chefs within the region in these difficult times.

 "There is obviously no charge for virtual admission, but we would encourage visitors to make a small donation to Hospitality Action to help facilitate the great work that they do."

 To follow the event, visit and email with any enquiries.
