A celebration of the world’s cuisine took place on the Flag Market during Saturday.


Feast for Peace returned with chefs from three continents using food which would have gone in the bin to cook up a selection of tasty treats.

Alongside the food there was music and dancing from a variety of Preston’s diverse communities.

Inside the Harris Museum and Art Gallery there were exhibitions and workshops explaining about the city’s link with food during the First World War – with the rationing announcement read out by a town crier.
