BARRY Island food and drink festival returns later this week – with award-winning drinks on the menu.

Barry Island will be taken over by food and drink stalls, craft stalls, and live music on Saturday June 25 and Sunday June 26.

There will be a bar and food area on the western promenade and the eastern shelter, with craft stalls in between the two.
