Food and drink will be supplied by Soup by T and local microbrewery, The Tap House, and there will also be a number of local traders selling arts, crafts and hand made products. 

Jane Mainey, Tourism & Marketing Manager for Ross-on-Wye Town Council commented: “We hope to attract lots of visitors to Ross-on-Wye over the Easter weekend and we felt it was a good opportunity to put on a free celebration at the Market House before it undergoes renovations this year. 

“We’re very excited to welcome Saku, a contestant from the 2023 Great British Bake Off television series, to the baking competition judging panel, and we hope to receive lots of entries from talented local bakers! The live music also promises to be a great addition to the event, with Jake of Diamonds who was mentored by Tom Jones on The Voice plus talented performers, Erica Jean and Noah Rawlings.”
