The Fishergate Street Food Festival will make its debut in Preston from November 19-21.


If the festival is successful, there’s a hope that the event could become annual.

Sophia Gray, retail liaison manager for the Fishergate Shopping Centre, said: “Bringing new experiences to Preston is something we feel passionate about. And street food is the hottest food craze in the UK right now.

“Supporting independent operators who are also passionate about what they are doing, the food they are making and providing a new taste experience for our shoppers, commuters and office workers all over the city is something everyone at the Fishergate Centre is really excited about.”

Street food has become a huge business across the UK over the last five years.

It aims to deliver a style food that’s affordable but higher on quality than your typical burger van.

Keith Mitchell, manager of the Fishergate Shopping Centre, added: “Bringing a street food festival to Preston is all part of the centre’s aim to play its part in helping to revitalise the city centre.

“It’s just one of many initiatives we have planned for the coming months to encourage people to spend and enjoy more time in the centre and the city.

“The ambitious new plans we are currently progressing through the planning process will also go a long way in helping to reinforce the city’s vitality and viability – building its early evening and mid-market leisure economy is a key part of that.”

The festival will be open from 12pm-9pm on Thursday and 10am-6pm on Friday and Saturday.

Many vendors have already been confirmed for the event. Read on to find out what they are.
