Commenting on what’s in store for the festival, Tabara N’Diaye, one of the organisers says:

"Every year we challenge ourselves to build on previous editions and make each festival even better than the one before. In addition to the extraordinary line-up of bars we’re working with, many of which are new to the city, we’re delighted to be partnering with an array of fantastic Leeds businesses to offer a plethora of tastings, masterclasses, games and culinary pairings."

Exclusive experiences are set to include a Tick Tock Unlock escape room, a rum and chocolate tasting with Hotel Chocolat and the finest street food vendors in the undercover Crypt.
