Wakefield's Festival of Food, Drink & Rhubarb has a great selection of street entertainment to put a big smile on your face while you experience the festival.

Granny Turismo will be zooming around the city centre on their shopping trollies, just make sure not to get in the way of their funny antics.

The infamous and ever popular Ruby Rhubarb will be roaming the streets and greeting the festival goers with her glamorous looks and personality.

5 piece street band Hot Diners also make a return to the festival playing music to get your feet moving up and down the precinct.

Plus there will also be crazy waiters, stilt walkers and a unicyclist to interact with as you explore the city centre over the course of the festival.
