FOLLOWING the massive success of its first year, Corbridge Food and Drink Festival is preparing to return this weekend.

Cafes, pubs, restaurants and shops will come together to celebrate the great food in their village during the event running from Friday to Sunday.

Thanks to the popularity of the Great Corbridge Bake Off last year, it looks set to enjoy another bumper year, and BBC Look North’s news presenter Carol Malia is resuming her role on the judging panel. There will also be speciality menus and special offers, live music and entertainment, a “Gin Off” competition and an apple press.
