The East Riding of Yorkshire FEASTivals
As 2022 begins, we are excited to be working in partnership with East Riding of Yorkshire Council and The European Union Regional Development Fund to host a series of five FEASTivals across the East Ridings of Yorkshire. The East Riding of Yorkshire FEASTivals series will commence at the end of January 2022 and continue throughout February visiting the towns of Hessle, Hornsea, Market Weighton, Withernsea and Howden. Each event will be packed with mouth-watering street foods and live music as well as bar, artisan groceries, arts, crafts and accessories.

Our tour of the East Ridings begins in Hessle, just north of the Humber Bridge. The Town Square and adjacent streets provide the venue for a fantastic weekend of foodie treats and live entertainment. Dig in to delicious street foods including traditional Mexican and Japanese dishes or choose from an array of groceries such as scrumptious brownies, award winning cheese truckles or fudge. A fine selection of beverages will be available to purchase and take home including fruit liqueurs, gin, rum and locally produced craft beers.
