New Brighton welcomes allcomers to its Seaside Festival next month and organisers are determined that nobody鈥檚 going home hungry.

The full food and drink offering was announced today and there鈥檚 no need to think it鈥檚 all about sand in the sandwiches when the event takes place from May 27 to 29.

Across the three days, festivalgoers can enjoy street food, chef demonstrations and activities that junior food fans can join in with as well.

Fort Perch Rock hosts a Chef鈥檚 Theatre on all three days.

One of the highlights is on Saturday afternoon when the ever-popular stand-up Brendan Riley will take on chef Adam Franklin for a comedy cook-off.

Other highlights in the theatre include a foraging challenge (for Adam again) and an attempt to beat the clock at oyster shucking and hot dog eating.

A Junior Chefs鈥?Academy is held on the Sunday where young culinary experts will learn about everything from pineapples to fungus.
