Lotherton Hall played host to cuisines from around the world this weekend when the country house held its first ever food festival.

The Lotherton Hall Food and Drink Festival, which started on Saturday at the site near Aberford and continues into tomorrow (Monday), features some of the city’s best street food traders alongside 80 local craft and produce stalls.

A big screen was set up in the grounds for visitors to watch the Tour de Yorkshire and a festival bar served locally brewed beers from Rudgate Brewery as well as Pimms, prosecco and cocktails.

Councillor Brian Selby, Leeds City Council’s lead member for museums and galleries, said: “This food festival is an exciting addition to the wonderful programme of events at Lotherton Hall and I can’t imagine a better setting than the estate’s stunning grounds for such a fantastic celebration of food.”

Highlights tomorrow include traditional May Day festivities such as may pole dancing and a brass band set to play in front of the hall.
