BID manager Paul Ambrose who organises the event with support from Rochdale Borough Council, said:
"Street Eat showcases the vibrant and high quality food and drink the town has to offer as well as being a great day out. Whether you’re wanting to try something new or just want your favourite food to accompany an ice cold drink while listening to some great live music, Street Eat has got you covered. We do all we can to make it as affordable as possible too, entry is free and there’s no charge for the children’s entertainment either, including the rides and shows. Last summer was very busy so we’ll be making some subtle changes to help us accommodate a few more people as well as adding extra seating.”
Councillor Janet Emsley, deputy leader and cabinet member for events said: “Street Eat is a fabulous day and a great showcase for the town’s food and drink scene which we must keep supporting.”
Due to ongoing work around Rochdale Town Hall, Street Eat will stay at its temporary location on The Butts.
Street Eat will run from 11am to 7pm. Find out more and get the full line-up or visit #StreetEatRoch on social media.
