Hundreds of visitors descended on Swansea on Good Friday for the first day of a bumper food weekend in the city. Swansea Street Food Festival is back this Easter weekend with more than 30 stalls serving up delicious meals, snacks and sweet treats from across the globe.

The festival site beside the Boer War memorial on Mumbles Road has a mixture of cuisines from Welsh, British, Italian, Moroccan, Jamaican, American, Uzbek and Sri Lankan dishes, to name a few, and a bar serving alcohol and soft drinks. There is also entertainment each evening. On Friday comedians will be performing, while on Saturday there will be live music performances and on Sunday there will be a silent disco.

Menus and pricing differ from stall to stall but when we visited on Friday we saw many stalls were serving vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, and several stalls were selling good-sized snacks and treats for less than £5. For a main meal you're looking at £10 to £15.

There are two queues at the site entrance: one for advanced ticket-holders and one for walk-ins. You can also pre-book a table reservation.

Adult day tickets to the street food festival are £3 each plus booking fee. Children are free. Tickets for evening entertainment are £8 plus booking fee. You can buy tickets online here.
