Citylicious Events invites you to take part in the fantastic Switch-On Food & Drink Festival.

The Blackpool Illuminations weekend is one of the biggest events in the British summer calendar and as well as three nights of entertainment, Citylicious Events is bringing the biggest ever celebration of Food & Drink seen in the UK to the Blackpool promenade.

The Switch-On Food & Drink Festival will feature a variety of entertainment in the company of artisan producers, pop-up restaurants, premium brands, international street food, master mixologists and top local chefs.

With a focus on locally sourced produce, the Chef's Theatre will host top local chefs cooking their favourite dishes and inspiring the audience to recreate those meals at home. Drinks experts will give you their professional opinions from the world of wine, beer and spirits in the Drink's Theatre and some of the UK’s top mixologists will be mixing and shaking up some fruity concoctions! Adding to this will be the Cake & Bake, Chocolate & Desert Theatre Tent where top patisserie chefs and chocolatiers demonstrate their favourite recipes and give cooking tips to those with a sweet tooth.

Some of the UK's most exciting street food vendors will be serving up a wide variety of tasty delicacies from around the world and artisan producers, kitchen ware & crafters will be selling local speciality produce for you to take home.

Iain Fenwick of Citylicious Events commented;

This event is free to everyone! We want to put on a celebration of Britain's multi-cultural society and give a platform to showcase the diversity of the British food culture. Events like these should not be exclusive and we want to make this celebration available to everyone so people can discover what new exciting foods are out there. Street Food is cool, mobile isn't just about technology nowadays, some of the tastiest foods you can enjoy are served to you in a styrofoam container on the corner of your high street. What’s more is they are made from locally sourced produce and as Citylicious is a big fan of the 'farm to table' initiative we cannot think of anytime better than bringing it all together during one of the country's most iconic celebrations Blackpool Illuminations.
