A slice of West Cumbria has staged a takeover of Manchester city centre to showcase the best of Allerdale.

Hundreds of people have tasted some of the top food and drink produced in the borough, spoken to its leading business people, heard musicians from the area and had the opportunity to see World Rally Championship cars from Dovenby's M-Sport.

Allerdale Days in Manchester has been organised by CN Events – part of Newsquest Cumbria – on behalf of Allerdale council and is taking place in Albert Square, in the heart of Manchester, today and tomorrow.

The event features includes a beer tent with local beers from Cockermouth’s Jennings Brewery and Workington's Tractor Shed Brewery, a climbing wall and live music.

There are exhibition stands from companies and organisations including Smith Engineering, Ullswater 'Steamers', Wild and Fruitful, Cockermouth's Coffee Kitchen, Lakeland Mues, Iggesund Paperboard, Honister Slate Mine, Maryport's Senhouse Roman Museum, Workington's Carnegie Theatre, Lakes College, BEC, the University of Cumbria and Cumbria Tourism.

Event sponsor is TSP Engineering.
