This Saturday, the group is hosting a street food fair in the courtyard of St Georges Guildhall from 11am-4pm.Five street food businesses will be there, with music from DJ Mark Farge.Lynn Business Improvement District manager Vicky Etheridge, who has been working with Platform 30, said: “Whilst our main target audience is under 30s, it’s open to all and we hope to make it a regular-ish event. “The Courtyard is such a lovely environment, a bit more atmospheric than Tuesday Market Place which would be the obvious place to host this.”Food traders at the event include Meze Turka – offering Turkish meze boxes, Up N Mellow – Jamaican jerk chicken, Crafty Burger, Salvio’s Wood Fired Pizza and Reesey’s Ice cream. Anybody interested in attending other Platform 30 events can keep up to date via their Instagram page @_platform30.Their next event is an open mic night at The Place with Toast Poetry – a live poetry workshop organisation.
