Great British Bake Off star Howard Middleton will feature in the line up of well-known chefs and talented entertainers for the second Sherburn Craft and Food Festival.

After a hugely successful inaugural show in 2017, the three-day festival, sponsored by Sherburn-based Pecan Deluxe Candy, is back in Eversley Park during the bank holiday from August 25-27, offering over 100 exhibits and attractions. Due to popular demand the organisers have introduced extended opening hours on Sunday evening - the Afterfest - as well as live entertainment, children’s activities, a funfair, a new vintage car and bike display and, the highlight of the show, engaging and insightful cookery demos.

Howard specialises in gluten-free bakery and will be using ingredients including fudges and pralines from Pecan Deluxe to show how gluten-free bakery treats including madeleines, tarts and cakes can be just as delicious as gluten-laden alternatives.

His demonstrations will be at 11am, 1pm and 3pm on August 25. Festival tickets are £6 for adults, £2 for children.
