A STREET food event is going meat-free with an al fresco festival where plenty of live music will be on the menu.

Street Food Affair will be starting the 2018 season with some taster events at independent venues in the region.

The first is set for Sunday April 1 at Katie Fitzgerald's on Enville Street from 4pm to 9pm in Katies' Yard with live music to follow straight after.

Street Food Affair regulars Gresko Bodhi, Greens Vegan and Laghi’s Deli will be on hand to provide a range of Japanese, Eastern Mediterranean and Italian Pizza based street food suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Live music will be served up by Dave Onions, Esther Turner, Zoe and Nick Barrell, Paul Beadle, Jess Silk, Ian Marrey and Ben Smith.

There is no entrance fee for the event however donations will be accepted for the pub’s chosen charity; Action 4 Animals.

All musicians have donated their services free to help raise awareness of this year’s Action 4 Animals appeal.
