THE St James Food Festival will be held in Louth town centre on Sunday, July 17.

Sixty stalls will have food of all kinds, including a wide range of local produce.

The festival will also include arts and crafts.

There will be entertainment for all ages including Punch & Judy.

The St James Food Festival is organised by the Louth Food and Drink Group, part of the Louth Town Partnership.

Businesses in Louth town centre businesses are throwing their support behind the festival.

Over 30 retailers, most normally closed on a Sunday, will open their doors for the event.

David Sandwith, managing director of Eve & Ranshaw, said: “In these difficult times we must do all we can to support our high street businesses, especially the independent, family-owned shops which add so much to Louth’s lifestyle.”

Louth’s new Town Manager Ali Hall added: “This is a wonderful boost for the town. Newcomers to Louth like myself cannot help but be impressed by the variety and quality of Louth’s shops. The food offer is remarkable for a town of this size, and Louth well deserves its growing reputation as a good food town.”

The festival takes place between 10am and 4pm.

Numbered Festival programmes will be on sale at 50p each with a £50 cash prize to be drawn on site at 3pm. The lucky number holder must be there to claim the prize.
