9th annual Gluten Free Food Fayre held at the Rheged Centre near Penrith

Hundreds of people from across the UK have attended a gluten free food fayre near Penrith. The event at the Rheged Centre is now in its 9th year and is run by the Cumbrian branch of the charity Coeliac UK.

Around 40 producers, many of them from Cumbria and southern Scotland sold goods ranging from pies, to bread, cakes and even beer.

We've got absolutely everything here, there's nothing you can't get that's gluten free here. We've got cakes, bread, beer, even gluten free haggis and gluten free black pudding."

– Jean Foster, Cumbrian voluntary support group, Coeliac UK

Organisers say the event gets bigger each year as more awareness is raised about the coeliac disease, which is caused by an intolerance to gluten. It's thought 1 in every 100 people are affected.
