CHRISTCHURCH Food Festival will expand their events for youngsters at this year’s event.

Following the success of the Kids' Kitchen at the previous events, this year there will be more workshops at two venues.

Four Kids' Kitchen workshops will be taking place at The Priory School in Wick Lane on the same days as the Festival Market – Saturday, May 10 and Sunday, May 11 – with a further two at The Kings Arms Hotel in Castle Street.

All six sessions have been sponsored by the Rotary Club of Christchurch and Waitrose, Christchurch.

All workshops will last for an hour and a half and cost £5 per person.

The workshops with Lesley Waters have sold out already.

Festival president Mary Reader said: “We are extremely grateful to The Rotary Club and Waitrose for their support for these workshops which means we have been able to keep the cost of each session down and expand into two venues.

“I am confident any young person taking part will not only learn some valuable cookery skills but also have fun.”
