A range of food, drink and entertainment will be on offer at Stockton International Riverside Festival's (SIRF) debut festival village.

SIRF Green is a brand new element for this year's festival and will host a number of food outlets, as well as having coffee and cocktails on offer.

There'll also be musicians performing at different points across the weekend on the Garden Stage.

The site, based on the corner of Bishop Street and Thistle Green, is fully accessible and includes a covered marquee.

Councillor Steve Nelson, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council's Cabinet Member for Health, Leisure and Culture, said: "SIRF Green is a really exciting addition to the festival and there'll be something for everyone's taste buds with Korean food, gourmet brownies and flapjacks, vegan dishes, stone-baked pizzas and more.

"You'll also be able to enjoy cocktails, alcohol-free mocktails and coffee from some excellent local businesses.

"So if you're at SIRF and feeling hungry, thirsty or just want a relax between shows, then SIRF Green will be the place for you!"
