If you’re as big a fan of Yorkshire puddings as us lot at Delish UK, then you are going to be whisked up into a frenzy when I tell you this: a festival celebrating those fluffy bad boys is coming next year!

The Yorkshire Pudding Festival is happening at the very beginning of February, so you really don’t have long to wait either! It launches at Kirkgate Market in Leeds City Centre on 1 February from 10 am until 4 pm.

Described as “a celebration of the Yorkshire pudding, an essential part of the Nation’s roast dinners”, the organisers say it’s the first festival of its kind. And if you decide to swing by, you’ll be treated to Yorkshire puddings from across the UK and plenty of lovely beer, as it’s sponsored by Leeds-based brewery, Northern Monk.

As well as regular Yorkshire puddings, there promises to be spicy versions from Kang’s Punjabi, and literal Yorkshire puddings in the shape of sweet takes from Sugar Rush.

Eventbrite’s description reads: “The Festival will host a range of food vendors creating their take on the humble Yorkshire pudding, mixing, stuffing and smothering them with a delicious array of home-cooked dishes from around the world.

“To join the food stalls, we will also have variety of Yorkshire traders selling Yorkshire products, a welcoming bar where you can grab a drink with your chosen dish (or dishes!) and sit back and enjoy the live entertainment that will be on throughout the day.”

And the best part? It’s free to attend, so you just have to pay for puddings and pints. Hooray!
