Cllr Elizabeth Scott, Durham County Council’s Cabinet member for economy and partnerships, said:

“Seaham Food Festival is a fantastic event that not only offers a wonderful day out for people of all ages, but boosts the local economy and enhances County Durham’s reputation as a culinary destination.

“It also provides an opportunity for North East producers to showcase their wares to a wide audience so I would encourage any traders interested in being a part of the festival to apply as soon as possible.

“Events like Seaham Food Festival are also one of the reasons why we believe County Durham is such a stronger contender to be UK City of Culture 2025. I would urge everyone to continue backing the Durham 2025 campaign and help us to expand the county’s world class cultural offer.”
