The third annual Christmas food fayre has been held at the historic village of Port Sunlight.

The event brought together a little Christmas sparkle for top chefs, families and friends to experience all the different foods and drink producers available at the Christmas fayre.

Lionel Bolland, chief executive of Port Sunlight Village Trust, said: “It has been a great event. I think the chef demonstrations were successful and it has been a busy expedition of food.”

The event was spread over five different venues, giving visitors an opportunity to explore the village. It included activities for children and families, and art and crafts demonstrations, food markets, traditional fairground rides, a junior chef’s academy and live reindeers.

Mr Bolland said: “I have just come from Hulme hall which has been the busiest yet. A lot of people throughout the village are coming along to the stalls.”

Port Sunlight welcomed back Chef Patron, Cyrus Todiwala, who hosted the chef demonstration stage, including an exciting selection of Christmas favourites with a twist at the Leverhulme Hotel.

Joining Cyrus on stage were Michelin star chef Marc Wilkinson, local baker Ceri Newton and award-winning head chef of Leverhulme Hotel, Richard Fox.
