The market brings together food and craft stalls from different parts of the world. Martine Visser(left) from Holland and Lauren Quirey from Belfast serve up some Dutch pancakes.

Thousands of food fans will flock to Belfast this bank holiday weekend for fun and al fresco dining.

Around 100 traders from around the globe make a welcome return to the grounds of Belfast City Hall for the spring Continental Market, while at the same time The Sizzle music and food event makes Botanic Gardens its home.

The Sizzle will feature many of Northern Ireland’s talented chefs, accompanied by live music from groups and artists like Taste, Bagatelle and Nashville’s famous George Hamilton IV.

However, it looks likely that prime cuts of quality meat might be the only thing to sizzle, so pack your umbrella.

Meanwhile, some 80,000 concert-goers are expected to attend Slane this Saturday.

Henry Mountcharles’ famous Meath venue will be inundated with revellers for the Kings Of Leon concert.
