Tuesday, July 23, 2019

Local recruitment agency, Stafflex has announced it will be sponsoring the Artisan Zone for the third year running at next month’s highly anticipated Food and Drink Festival held at St. George’s Square between 1st – 4th August.

The Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival is one of the largest of its kind in the UK, regularly attracting crowds of over 120,000 featuring over 100 local stalls with entertainment including live music, circus skills, face painting as well as a host of other activities.

The Artisan Zone is a dedicated area of market stalls for small businesses in Huddersfield. The area offers discounted setup costs for businesses enabling them to sell unique, locally produced food and drink to the public, which would have otherwise been out of their budget.

Local businesses at the Artisan Zone include Luddenden Valley Wines, Yorkshire Drizzle and Candy Emporium. The area will be located near the Kings Head Pub, next to the brand new Chill Zone.

Stafflex are one of the founding partners of Huddersfield Live, the not-for-profit events company behind the Food and Drink Festival as well as other exciting events around the town.

In addition to this, fairandfunky an organisation committed to raising awareness about fairtrade, healthy eating and excersice amongst children, will be taking the Stafflex Smoothie Bike to the festival and running workshop sessions in the Children’s Zone on Friday 2nd August.

There will be two sessions from 10am-12noon and from 1pm-3pm so make sure to pop in and get yourself a healthy smoothie to enjoy at festival!

Sam Watt, Director at Huddersfield Live said: “We’re very thankful that Stafflex have decided to sponsor the Artisan Zone again this year. There is an incredibly strong alignment between our two organizations’ of supporting the local community and we’re excited to work with them on a number of different projects in the future.”
