Scrantastic! Sunderland's new free food festival in pictures
Families and foodies turned out for a weekend of delicious family fun as Sunderland welcomed its first ever Scrantastic free food festival.
The three-day event featured cooking demonstrations from Sunderland's own MasterChef star Stacie Stewart and Great British Bake Off’s Steven Carter Bailey, as well as a performance from CBeebies presenter Katy Ashworth, and food stalls, a continental market, free family entertainment, and food-themed activities including street theatre and a funfair. The event will be complemented by Sunderland Food and Drink Fest, which takes place in the city centre in June.
