MILBURNGATE is launching a pop-up food event on Durham’s Riverside offering a variety of dishes and drinks for visitors to the 10th anniversary Lumiere Festival.

Based at the Milburngate development site next to the Radisson Hotel and Penny Ferry Bridge on the River Wear, ‘Milburngate Munch’ will run throughout the light festival, which takes place next week.

‘Milburngate Munch’ will bring together a collection of stalls operated by specially selected North East traders serving a range of quality hot food and drinks.

Among them will be a stall run by Sedgefield’s highly respected restaurant, The Impeccable Pig and Sunderland-based mobile wood fired pizzeria, Truly Madly Pizza. Also available will be stalls serving halloumi fries, scampi & chips and fish finger sandwiches along with hot drinks including Illy Coffee.

Perfectly positioned close to a number of the festival’s stand-out art installations on the riverside, including the giant glowing slinky toy, ‘End over End’, which will be on the Milburngate site, majestic whale, ‘Mysticete’ just a few metres away on the River Wear and ‘Blue Skies’ underneath Milburngate Bridge, ‘Milburngate Munch’ offers an ideal pit-stop for Lumiere visitors on their tour of the city.

Complementing the wider food and drink offering across Durham City available to visitors during Lumiere, ‘Milburngate Munch’ is part of the continued support of the festival by the developers of the living, working and leisure destination, Arlington Real Estate and Richardson.

The Milburngate development team has been a key supporter of Lumiere since the very first festival in 2009 with Arlington Real Estate Managing Director Allan Cook Chair of the Lumiere Durham Development Board.

Allan Cook said: “Milburngate Munch will offer a great place for Lumiere visitors to grab a bite to eat and a hot drink on their tour round the festival. We’ve brought together a great selection of local restaurants and traders who will offer some fantastic warm comfort to festival goers at Milburngate when they visit the riverside to see some of the amazing installations hosted there.”

‘Milburngate Munch’ will be open to Lumiere visitors throughout the festival on the following times:

Thursday 14th November 4pm-11pm

Friday 15th November 4pm-11pm

Saturday 16th November 1pm-11pm
