THOUSANDS gathered for Penarth’s music and street food festival at the weekend.

The event – which was hosted at Penarth Lawn Tennis club on Saturday, May 28 – sold out within minutes of the gates opening.

More than 1,200 joined the festivities, tucking into food and busting out their dance moves to enjoy five local bands:

  • The Elijah Quintet;
  • The Little Giants;
  • Jim Pirrie;
  • T-One;
  • GrooveLine.

Along with live music there were award-winning street food kitchens offering up an abundance of food. This included:

  • Kerala Caravan;
  • The Bearded Taco;
  • The Welsh Italian Pizza company;
  • Cardiff dough and Co.

Club spokesman, Nick Skinner, said: “It was a fantastic day.

“It seemed like the whole of Penarth was there – it was incredibly friendly and a great place to catch up with people.

“There were toddlers, teenagers and grandparents all mixing in enjoying the music and the food.

“Dozens of volunteers did an amazing job on stalls and bars trying to keep the queues down as much as possible. But it was a fantastically busy day!”
