Food glorious food next weekend!

Packed festival planned

It's food glorious food at the Villa Marina next weekend.

The ninth Isle of Man Food and Drink Festival takes place on September 16 and 17.

There's a huge variety of events from the final of the Isle of Man Chef of the Year and cookery demonstrations, to book stalls and a barista competition - plus the Island's first ever official competitive eating contest.

Audrey Fowler from DEFA says it's similar to the famous hot dog eating contest held annually at Coney Island in the United States.
