The countdown is on as this popular live food and drink event returns to Chorley town centre on the weekend of June 5 and June 6.
A host of local restaurants, bakers, brewers and producers are all now confirmed as taking part in this year's A Taste of Chorley.

The festival returns after an enforced absence last year and promises to be a real celebration of local produce.
An exciting schedule is being lined up for the demonstration kitchen.
Talented local chefs, butchers and bakers will be showing off simple tasty recipes for people to do at home.
Meanwhile, the Great Chorley Bake Off is shaping up to be a hotly-contested affair, with bakers signing up to show off their home made cakes, scones or breads.
The competition is free to enter, but people need to pre-book a spot before 6pm on Friday June 4.
Spaces are still available in each of the three categories: Professional, Adults (16+) and Under 16s.

Councillor Peter Wilson, Deputy Leader of Chorley Council said: “It is great that A Taste of Chorley will be taking place as a live event this year.
“I am looking forward to that weekend and seeing visitors return to the town centre to enjoy an event that promotes the fantastic food and drink offer in Chorley.
“We have seen lots of people shop local in lockdown and events like this will help to encourage people to continue to support the local economy and also enjoy a day out in Chorley town centre as we begin to get back to normal.”
