Footage has been released showing just how lovely the city’s Feast for Peace event was.

Taking place on the Flag Market during Saturday 19 August the event was founded by Kay Johnson from The Larder.

She and volunteer chefs take unwanted food and use it to cook up a storm for people to try cuisine from all over the world.

This year’s event was themed around the First World War and the food effort in the war, with lectures and workshops in the Harris Museum and Art Gallery explaining how crucial food production was.

It included a proclamation made by the town crier explaining that was the exact same one made to the city during the war.

The video, made by Tom Wolfrenden, includes interviews with those involved in organising and taking part in the event.
