Foodies rejoice!

Eighth Isle of Man Food and Drink Festival gets underway

Organisers are expecting a tasty turnout at the Isle of Man Food & Drink Festival, which gets underway today (Sat).

Visitors can enjoy anything from coffee and cakes to African and Thai cuisine, soft drinks and ale - all crafted by Manx suppliers, producers or chefs.

Over 7,000 foodies sampled the refreshments at last year's festival.

Celebrity chef Gareth Wyn Jones will wow the crowds with a live cookery demonstration later today - he told Manx Radio he can't wait to dive in.

The gates are open between 10am - 9pm today (Sat), and again from 10am tomorrow (Sun).
