The Flavourfest market is due to take place outside Calderdale College, as part of a month-long festival of events and activities in June 2022.

The free event looks to celebrate the richness of culture and diversity in Calderdale and promote the Park and Warley areas of the borough as great places to live, work and visit.

Calderdale Council’s Director of Regeneration and Strategy, Shelagh O’Neill, said: “The Flavourfest local market is an exciting opportunity for existing local food businesses and for those with a spark of an idea looking for a place to start out.
