Sunday lunch can take a week off - instead, let the second MK Feast cater for your tastebuds.

Ther food and drink festival is returning to Bradwell Abbey with the best of Milton Keynes’ home-grown products and produce in a family-friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Six cold food stalls, five artists, five charities and 10 street food vans will be tempting you with aromatic delights.

And when you’ve finished being a foodie, you can enjoy the nice local craft bar, operated by MK Biergarten.

“The first edition of MK Feast was such a success that we knew we had to put a next date in the diary,” said event organiser Franzi Florack.

“We are especially proud that all of our producers are based either in or very close to MK, and the addition of entertainment and a bar should tempt lots of people to join us for the day.

“We want to showcase all the brilliant products which are made so close to our doorstep and celebrate the traders who make them happen,” she said.

Street food on offer will span Indian, Mexican and Moroccan dishes, a hog roast and burgers, and some spectacular cheese toasties!

With many people now choosing to be meat free, vegetarian and vegan stalls will show how easy it is to still enjoy delicious food.

And a farmers market will include locally made bread, chocolate, chutneys and cakes.

“By supporting the traders, the citizens of Milton Keynes contribute to our local economy and they have the exciting chance to get to know the people who produce the food and drink for them,” Franzi added.

Food won’t be the only thing on the menu on the day though, with stalls also offering photography, flowers, soaps and art.

Children will be entertained with facepainting and ballooning and live music will play.

Bradwell Abbey will be open between 11am and 4pm and admission is free.
