There will also be a host of bars serving craft beer, real ale, cocktails and wine, plus live music and entertainment throughout the weekend.

Andy Ellis, one of the event organisers told The Lincolnite: “The street-food scene in London is huge, we’re bringing the best of the best to Lincoln.

“We’re very passionate about the city and believe it deserves events that stand out on a national level.”

Andy George, also organising the event, added: “World-class comedians like Bill Bailey don’t often appear in Lincoln so it’s a great opportunity to catch them.”

Ben Atkins, who is organising the event, said: “It’s an incredibly exciting concept, from Vietnamese Streetfood to Halloumi Fries to Gin Sorbets to London’s best burger joint – you won’t know where to turn!

“It will be a really nice place to hang out and soak up the incredible atmosphere.”
