FOODIES have another chance to tickle their taste buds in Stalybridge this Friday – under a different name.
The initial Foodie Friday event proved a huge success last month, now there will be a repeat in Armentieres Square.
But the title has had to change to make sure it stands out from the rest and avoids confusion with other events.
Organisers believe “Stalybridge Street Feast” provides a title solely associated with the historic town.
There are additional changes to the event following feedback. Roads will be closed earlier to allow traders to set up. Stalls will be placed in the road to create more queuing space and room in the seating areas. Bus routes will be diverted and signposted.
To provide even more delicious choices, there will be an increase in the number of vendors and they will all have extra staff to help ease the demand. There will also be extended bar facilities as well as better provision for coffee, tea and soft drinks.
The seating area will flow to both sides of the canal and we will bring in additional bins, and portaloos.
The event takes place in Armetieres Square, Stalybridge. Friday, August 13 from 5pm.
