A light will shine on some of the region's top street food stalls as they serve up dishes at a special market next week.

Durham Market Place will host the Full Moon Market on Tuesday, with 11 stallholders set to fill the city centre with aromas and flavours from across the world.

It will run from 4pm to 9pm, with live music to also add to the atmosphere.

The family-friendly evening event will give visitors the opportunity to taste cuisines from Italy, Belgium, Thailand, Cuba, France and more.

Colin Wilkes is managing director of Durham Markets which organises the market together with the Durham Street Food Project.

He said: “This is a wonderfully atmospheric evening in the heart of Durham, with amazing food and live music.

La Creperie will create sweet and savoury treats on the night.

"It’s great to see visitors and locals enjoying it, to see whole families coming along for the evening, enjoying trying new dishes and favourites too.

“It’s not just a great evening out, but also an opportunity to support the region’s independent businesses.

"There are always new traders to discover, so it’s well worth making the Full Moon Market a monthly date.”

Live music will be performed by Chloe Castro, who appeared on The Voice, The Altercosmos Duo and The Bone Hill Apostles.
