More than 20,000 people will descend on Shrewsbury's Quarry Park for the town's annual food festival on June 24th and 25th.

There will be celebrity chef demonstrations, free activities for children, a showcase of the best local music, a hot food court, artisan bars and more.

The food festival was founded in 2012 and proved an instant success. It is run with the help of a team of 100 volunteers, called #TeamOrange. The event has helped Shrewsbury to build a reputation as being a centre of gastronomic excellence.

The event is on course to sell out and there will be more than 200 exhibitors on site.

The Quarry is Shrewsbury's beautiful, 29-acre parkland, encircled by the majestic loop of the river Severn. The Quarry has been Shrewsbury's most important site for recreation since the 16th Century.
