Some of you may know that as well as running the guest house I am also the founding member and main organiser of Tynemouth Food Festival. I really enjoy this role and over the last five years I have met and becomes friends with some great foodie people. The festival takes a lot of organising and we start straight the process straight after each festival ends reviewing how the weekend has gone and noting anything we could improve on. This then forms the basis for the first planning meeting. This year the festival will be the biggest yet with even more live entertainment, workshops and children’s activities. The picture below shows all the market traders who will be at this year’s festival on May the 7th and 8th. It’s going to be a great weekend and I am really looking forward to catching up with people and tasting some fantastic food.
