Food marquee victim of storms

York Food & Drink Festival gets underway today, but one of its marquees has fallen victim to Storm Bronagh.

Organisers came in this morning to find the marquee placed where the fountain used to be on Parliament Street bent out of shape by the high winds.

The moorings held fast though, and nothing more was damaged.

And it hasn’t affected the packed programme, which this year includes the new Food Factory where you can get hands-on and make things like pasta, bread and cheese. More ideas below.
