Regional and international traders will bring The Square to life for a three day celebration of all things great about Cheese and Ale.

The festival will feature a delicious array of products, with everything from a range of different cheeses and cheesy based snacks, to ale based products and goodies on offer.

The event will also showcase food traders from the popular RR Events Continental Street Market, which will see The Square brought to life with the sights, sounds and smells of the continent.

Mark Perris, head of economic development at Harborough District Council, said: “It is fantastic that Harborough district can attract new festivals such as this. We welcome any event that brings visitors into town and hope that people come out to support the festival and see what it, and the town, has to offer.”

RR Events Managing Director Tony Walsh said: “Our teams of staff and traders have been involved in markets across Europe for over 10 years. We are particularly proud of our Continental Street Market brand as we know the atmosphere that it brings to the towns and cities we visit. We would like to thank Harborough District Council for working with us to help launch this brand new event, and hope the people of Market Harborough will enjoy it and are as excited as we are.”

The Cheese and Ale Festival is free to attend and will be open on Friday 26 April to Sunday 28 April 10am to 6pm (Friday and Saturday) and 10am to 5pm (Sunday).
