Fork to Fork Festival is returning to Ark Franklin Primary Academy in Harvist Road for the second year running on June 11 from 12-6pm.

All funds raised on the day will support the school’s Open Air Classroom project which was launched last year.

The one-day festival is the brainchild of Thomasina Miers, 40, MasterChef winner and co-founder of Mexican restaurant group Wahaca, and Laura Harper-Hinton, 38, co-founder and creative director of Caravan all-day restaurants and specialty coffee business Caravan Coffee Roasters.

Thirty-five restaurants including some Michelin star names are among the food and produce stalls. There will be chef demos and talks and tastings from 12.15-4pm.

The event will also feature a bar serving craft beer, artisan wine and spirits, a picnic garden, a world fete, live music and numerous children’s activities.

Janine Ryan, headteacher of Ark Franklin said: “We want our children to thrive, not just survive in our dynamic world. We are raising funds for our open air classroom project, where children are already growing their own food. We want them to really interact with their environment and will be selling some of their produce on the day.

Tickets cost £8 with under 12’s going free.

To be in with a chance of winning one of three pairs of entry tickets, tell us how many years the festival has been running and send your answer to no later than midday on June 8.
