The festival is now in its fifth year and the town’s streets will be lined with more than 60 stalls serving up all kinds of street food from gourmet pork pies to sweet cakes and locally brewed ale to ice-cream.

There will also be live entertainment including bands, cookery demonstrations, street entertainers and family activities.

Andrew Tristram, clerk of organisers Old Bolsover Town Council, says the event is a massive plus for the town.

He said: “The amount of visitors who come to the town during the weekend can only be good for Bolsover and certainly puts us on the map.
