Food glorious food as Street Eat returns to Rochdale Town Hall Square

Street Eat, organised by Rochdale Business Improvement District (BID), will bring together the town’s food and drink establishments with lots of free live music.

The full list of traders has been confirmed and it features established favourites and some new arrivals. The food and drink line-up includes Bombay Brew, The Flying Horse Hotel, The Baum, Vicolo Del Vino, The Empire, Vinesteins, The Treehouse Bar, Our Gracie’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, Bank Top Farm, Mason’s Creations, Pad Thai Street Food, Brew Box, Cake Loves Cakes, D’Ale House and Keep It Sweet. For the first time the event will feature the team behind the new restaurant at the recently restored town hall, The Martlet Kitchen, which is due to open later in the year.

Street Eat will be serving up more food, drinks and entertainment on Saturday 15 June 2024.

There will be free activities and rides for children including a Victorian carousel, Punch and Judy shows, bumper cars, and face painting. The event also includes bars for the adults and a music stage hosted by Di Lynham from Happy Radio UK, serving up hours of fun for all ages.

The music line-up includes acoustic guitarist Edward Jamil, popular duo Shenanigans, Rochdale Music Service Rock School, pop choir, The Youth Choir and more.

BID manager Paul Ambrose, who organises the event with support from Rochdale Borough Council, said:

“Street Eat showcases lots of the vibrant food and drink the town has to offer as well as being a fun day out. Whether you’re wanting to try something new or just want your favourite food to accompany an ice cold drink while listening to some great live music, Street Eat has everything you need. We do all we can to make it as affordable as possible too, entry is free and there’s no charge for the children’s entertainment either, including the rides and shows. It’s going to be great to be back on the town hall square which gives us the increased space we need.”

Councillor Sue Smith, cabinet member for communities and co-operation, said:

“If you’ve visited Street Eat before you’ll know what a superb event it is, and if you haven’t, make sure the date is in your calendar and come along. There will be another varied menu of food and drink, all very affordable and Street Eat also helps to support local businesses so I encourage both visitors and residents to shop local, think local and support local.”

Ben Boothman, owner of The Flying Horse, added:

“With traders serving up smaller and more affordable portions you can sample dishes from different venues and experience amazing food served up here in the town centre. We’re pleased to be working alongside Rochdale BID again to celebrate the area’s food and drink offer and this is always a very busy day.”
