It's only days until a three-day new feast of brilliant street food and music begins at at Newby Hall.
This Friday sees the launch of the StrEat Food and Family Fun Festival, the sort of sister festival to the hugely popular one in August in Harrogate's Valley Gardens.
Running from September 22-24 at Newby Hall and gardens near Ripon, among the music acts is a genuine Fun Lovin Criminal.
Friday night will be Dance Night with Strictly Come Dancing star and BBC Radio DJ Scott Mills, supported by Thrill Collins, a fantastic, goodtime three-piece acoustic skiffle party band.
Saturday will be Pop Night starring one of the UK’s best boy bands Five, with suport from the Voodoo Love Orchestra.
The final night, Sunday will be Funk n Soul Night headlined by New Yorker Huey Morgan of BBC 6 Music DJ + Fun Lovin Criminals fame, with support by the fabulous Cantaloop Sunday.
The new festival follows the succes of StrEat Food and Family Fun Festival two years running in the Valley Gardens in Harrogate.
Organiser, Harrogate businesswoman Cathy McConaghy herself describes the event at Newby Hall as “the destination food and fun festival for the family to discover.”
The event will see craft beer teepees serving craft ales and lagers from The Great Yorkshire Brewery in Pickering, plus Pimms Lawn, Vines Wine Bar, The Angel Share Mobile Gin Bar and cocktail bars.
There’s plenty of family fun, including the Naughty Tea Ladies, Jean and Morag, brewing up a storm around the gardens on their specially-adapted tricycles.
An Artisan Market will also feature some 30 producers with handpicked products
And StrEat’s Glamping Village will feature hot tubs to book for private parties followed by a campfire chill-out.
