There will also be activities and entertainment for all the family.

Due to the success of the event last year, the location has been moved a little way across Leyland town centre to Hough Lane to allow for more space, extra exhibitor stalls and entertainment.

The live music stage will feature local talent and there will also be children’s activities and fairground rides to keep everyone entertained.

There are a few spaces left for stall holders and applications can be made here.

Councillor Paul Foster, Leader of South Ribble Borough Council said:  “I’m looking forward to seeing the popular event – A Taste of Leyland – return to the town centre in September promoting our excellent local food and drink businesses. 

“This fantastic event will showcase local produce and offer cooking demonstrations as well as the opportunity to sample some tasty products. 

“I encourage local businesses to join in to showcase their produce and everyone to come along to the event to have a great day out and enjoy the entertainment and some tasty food and drink offerings.
