More than 2,500 expected to flock to North-east food and drink festival North Hop

More than 2,500 people are expected to flock to a major North-east food and drink festival.

North Hop which showcases gins, cocktails and street vendor-style food, will take place in the city later this month.

Dubbed The Final Fling, because it is the last North Hop festival in its current form, this year’s event which will take place over three sessions, will be held at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on March 30 and 31.

Treats for food and drink lovers include a beer hall, cocktail lounge, food vendors serving up a wide range dishes, as well as live music from Scotland’s new and upcoming artists and bands.

And there will also be a pop-up marketplace featuring hand-crafted goods from the Aberdeen Etsy team.

Nearly half the tickets for the festival have been sold, and North Hop Festival director Michelle Russell said: “This is our fourth Aberdeen festival and it will be our 12th festival since North Hop began in Inverness in 2014.

“It has been an amazing journey so far and we have worked with some awesome producers and folk from across Scotland and beyond.

“But the time has come to take a step back and some time out to come up with fresh ideas for the future of the North Hop brand.”

Michelle added: “We have always been at the forefront of new trends and like to keep things fresh and unique.

“Aberdeen has always massively supported North Hop and we love running festivals in the city and that is exactly why we have chosen Aberdeen for our final fling to send the current festivals out in style!”

Distillers, brewers and makers will be on hand, working behind their own bars and stands at the festival. More than half the vendors are new faces to North Hop.
