Visitors will have the chance to taste incredible food from top local producers and enjoy a wide variety of street food with influences from across the globe.

Taking place across Palace Street and in The Guineas, there will also be the opportunity to improve your own cooking skills with demonstrations from chefs from renowned restaurants across East Anglia, as well famous celebrity chefs.

Theo Randall, of BBC’s Saturday Kitchen, features on Sunday and, on Saturday, one of Britain’s best-loved food writers, Sophie Grigson, will showcase what makes their cooking so sought after in the G’s Fresh Cookery Live Kitchen, in the Heritage Centre’s Kings Yard.

Wine expert Oz Clarke will also be on hand on Sunday to ensure that you can host the ultimate dinner party.

The Newmarket Buskers’ Competition finals will also be held, with performers competing for a £1,000 prize.
