Thousands of people are expected at Cockermouth's Taste Cumbria event.

The family friendly weekend takes over the town with something for all ages.

There is a Prosecco picnic, secret gin garden, beer festival and for the children a giant sandpit.

On Main Street there are food and drinks and drink stalls.

Two new Taste Trails, including a jigsaw treasure hunt for children, will guide people around the town through colour-coded zones.

We're really excited to give food lovers so many new reasons to come to Taste Cumbria in Cockermouth this year.

The line-up is great, and so is the opportunity to use two of the town's loveliest venues - Wordsworth House and Garden and Castlegate House Gallery.

I can’t wait to see our visiting chefs in action, not least Kevin Tickle who is in town for the first time for the exclusive pop-up restaurant.

It’s going to be a great weekend."

– Marie Whitehead, event organiser
