The East Riding FEASTival tour begins in Hessle, just North of the Humber Bridge, with the town square and its connecting streets providing the FEASTival venue on the 29 & 30 January 2022.
The FEASTival will be a celebration of our high streets, through an event that will feature street foods, bars of distinction, alfresco dining, live music, and children's entertainment served up with fun, colour and character.
Following the development of town centre recovery plans with local elected members, we have identified locations that have the potential and desire to explore new events or markets. These events will act to generate interest and footfall in town centres and is an exciting opportunity for businesses to reach new audiences.
These events are being commissioned by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, through the ERDF Welcome Back Fund. They are being delivered by Market Square Group Ltd, a specialist events company with significant experience of running events such as this.
