Nearly 20,000 visitors to the Dundee Flower and Food Festival enoyed a packed programme of events and some glorious September sunshine.

As well as plant and craft displays, the three-day event at Camperdown Park featured cookery demonstrations from a host of top chefs, live music from a number of local bands and even a performance of “Dino Raps” from CBeebies presenter Andy Day.

The TV star performed his dinosaur-themed musical extravaganza twice for fans of all ages on Sunday afternoon and drew huge crowds to the music stage for both sets.

He also posed for pictures with fans after each concert.

In the kitchen, Masterchef: The Professionals winner Jamie Scott, celebrity chef Tony Singh were among those giving cookery demonstrations on Sunday while Nick Nairn and Adam Newth from the Tayberry both made appearances on Saturday.

Other famous faces who appeared during this year’s festival include Gary Maclean, winner of the most recent series of Masterchef: The Professionals, and gardening guru Jim McColl.

Deputy neighbourhood services convener councillor Anne Rendall praised visitors and those taking part in the festival for contributing to the success of the event.

She said: “We are delighted with what has been another excellent show.

“The weather has been kind and the many thousands of visitors have enjoyed the spectacle of the flower and vegetable displays, the food and the wide variety of entertainment.

“I would like to thank the public for their support of the event, the sponsors and everyone who took part.”

Festival director Gary Robertson said it is a “privilege” to be involved in the organising the event.

He said: “People return year on year and we are always trying to make it bigger and better.

“It is a privilege to basically be the show manager and to continue to deliver for the public.”
