CONCERT-goers will not go hungry when a major music festival comes to Huddersfield this month.
Organisers of the annual Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival are planning to keep visitors well-fed - at a giant marquee to be set up on the Piazza.
The Head of Steam pub at St George's Square will be selling food and drink for people attending the festival, which runs from November 21 to 30.
Tony Brooks, owner of the Head of Steam, said the aim was to provide a "feeding station" for visitors who had little time for meals.
More than 50 concerts will be staged during the 10-day festival - with events running from 10am to 11pm at the three venues of Huddersfield Town Hall, St Paul's Hall and the Lawrence Batley Theatre.
Mr Brooks said: "It has been found in the past that people attending have not had enough time between performances to get good value, good quality food and drink."
The Piazza "hub" planned to provide freshly-prepared food and drink from 10am to midnight each day throughout the festival.
It was also hoped to provide a full bar service with real ales and ciders, lagers and fruit wines.
The marquee will also provide concert information and sell merchandise relating to the festival.
Sol Nicolaou, manager of the Head of Steam, said: "This appointment has given us great pride. We are determined to provide a catering facility second to none and we are really looking forward to the challenge."
The Head of Steam is gaining a reputation for catering for the big occasion.
The pub held the licence for the Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival in August, when it provided fruit wines, ciders, beers and a menu featuring local produce.
The music festival, first held in 1978, is one of the biggest events of its kind.
The concerts are reviewed by national newspapers and several are broadcast by BBC Radio 3.
This year's concert programme will include 14 world premieres and 34 UK premieres.
