There were a host of fantastic treats on offer with authentic Spanish paella cooking up next to traditional Mexican street food and a Turkish barbecue.

It’s not all about travelling the world though as local rare breed pork was on offer as well as a host of locally made cheese, jams and chutneys.

Amy Leader, of the organising team, said: “This is a really exciting opportunity for people to be in Hebden Bridge, experiencing the tastes of the world.

“The food was from all over the world, but predominantly the businesses are from local areas, from the Calder Valley, Calderdale, or Yorkshire.”
