Security has been stepped up for tomorrow’s Taste of Grampian event in light of the recent terror attack in Manchester.
The award-winning food and drink festival takes place tomorrow at the Thainstone Centre, Inverurie.
Carol Fowler from event organiser, Prime Events, advised those attending to get there early to avoid missing out on any demonstrations or performances.
She said: “We expect the day to be very busy and recommend you come early and be prepared for delays as there will be heightened security and bag searches, so please be patient.”
Tomorrow’s event will feature demonstrations from various leading chefs including telly favourite James Martin, P&J columnist and food writer extraordinare Claire Macdonald and award-winning chef Brian McLeish from Aberdeen’s Moonfish Cafe.
The festival will also feature the Press and Journal/Evening Express Motor Show, which this year features a special Blast From the Past section with a range of classic cars.
There will also be a new after-party, called Mart Fest, taking place immediately after the main event from 5pm to 11pm.
The Mart Fest, which will feature performances from the Red Hot Chilli Pipers and Sandi Thom, will include an array of outdoor street food, live music, piano bar and an acoustic lounge.
