Noshville is back in town (and so is Cerys)

Kerb's massive Americana hoedown lands on Granary Square. And just a few metres away is a very different kind of festival

FOOD: Noshville

Streetfood ledge Kerb is pretty unbeatable when it comes to sheer quality, so a marriage of Southern-style street food with this annual Americana Music Festival is a darn safe bet. Billed as the “tastiest hoedown in town” Noshville hits Granary Square for three days straight of alligator nuggets (yep), s’mores-covered sweet potato waffle fries, Nashville-fried chicken burgers, apple pie donuts, melon margaritas and Cajun-spiked lemonade. And watch out for banjos. Tickets: 8th-10th June, Granary Square N1C

ARTS: Poetry & Lyrics

Elsewhere Poet in the City joins forces with playwright Inua Ellams for a Rhythm and Poetry Party. Tickets: 8th & 9th June, King’s Place, York Way N1
