Taste Cumbria 2014 biggest yet

Around 35,000 people attended the 2014 Taste Cumbria food festival in Cockermouth, making it the biggest festival to date.

Now in its fifth year, producers who attended this year’s festival said it was the most successful so far for their businesses, with some reporting record takings.

Eat, drink, work your socks off and be merry!

It's nearly time for the biggest weekend of Cockermouth's calendar - Taste Cumbria 2014, taking place from the evening of Friday 26 September, through to the night of Sunday 28 September. Last year 30,000 people basked in amazing weather, wandered through the Main Street producers' market, ate gorgeous grub in the Market Place food court, shopped, ate, drank, met up with family and friends, and generally loved all the town had to offer.

Treat yourself - and help the Kirkgate Centre!
