Ripponden Food and Drink Festival

First ever Ripponden Food and Drink Festival goes down a treat

The first ever food and drink festival in Ripponden was a ‘sell out’, according to the team behind it all.

From gin lovers to street food fanatics there was something for everyone at the fest which ran alongside the nearby church’s May Day fair. While over in ‘Busker’s Corner’ rising star Callum Butterworth, a semi-finalist on ITV’s The Voice, took the stage and Archie Whitworth and Oolagh Hodgson from Halifax band, ‘Caline’ jammed out.
