Britain's Got Talent's Mr Chicken and Chips among live singers at Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival 2017

All the details on the bands, singers and performers at the festival including BGT's Audley Buckle

Britain’s Got Talent’s Audley Buckle – aka Mr Chicken and Chips – will be among the live acts performing at Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival 2017.

The cuisine is clearly the main event during the festival but there is plenty to enjoy when you’ve had your fill.

Veteran reggae singer Audley had Britain’s Got Talent judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon singing his ode to fast food ‘Chicken and Chips ’.

Audley, from Golcar, failed to make the semi-finals much to the annoyance of his new fans on Twitter but he'll be back performing the earworm and other tunes at the festival in St George's Square .

There will also be rock, indie, folk, pop, ethnic and other acts playing including LewRey, Storm and Vital Statistix on the bill sponsored by Dawsons music, Market Street.
