What’s on: Lowry Outlet Food Festival

The Lowry Outlet Food Festival returns in 2015 with a stellar line-up that includes celebrity chef Paul Hollywood and fashion consultant Gok Wan. Featuring an extensive program with cooking demonstrations, book signings and entertainment, the festival will run from 2-4 May in MediaCityUK.

Wan will make his debut appearance hosting live cooking demonstrations at the Cookery Theatre, where he will present his favourite Chinese dishes.

Hollywood, known for being a judge on BBC One’s Great British Bake Off, will also host interactive demonstrations. Fans will have the chance to meet and greet Wan and Hollywood at book signings over the weekend.

A Kids Cookery Zone will be set up on the festival’s last day with food-themed activities, games and entertainment for children.

A haven for amateur cooks, foodies and families, the festival will welcome 120 producers and street vendors selling their wares – everything from artisan cheese to handmade accessories. Stroll around the markets and taste the finest regional produce or pick up handcrafted items at bargain prices.

There’s plenty to see and do, with live music and an on-site multi-screen Vue Cinema to keep the family entertained.
