The Wakefield Festival of Food, Drink and Rhubarb is underway, and Sunday promises a brilliant conclusion to the weekend.

From cooking demonstrations to parking, we've put together a handy list of all the things you need to know about today's activities. Looking for Saturday's entertainment? Click here.

The good news? Wakefield city centre is home to more than 1,500 parking spaces - and because it's a Sunday, prices start from just 50p for the whole day. The bad news is that spaces are likely to be in high demand, so if you're up for a short walk, try parking on Ings Road, to the south of the centre.
Karen Wright, star of the Great British Bake Off 2018, will offer two cookery demonstrations. Catch her show in the cookery demonstration marquee, on the Bullring, at 11am and 2pm.

Visit the Cathedral Kitchen for a series of exciting bakes. Catering manager Ea Nielsen is experimenting with rhubarb foods, so expect to try rhubarb inspired sausage rolls, hot pork sandwiches with rhubarb sauce and rhubarb scones. Open 10am to 3pm.
More than 60 stalls have been set up in the Cathedral precinct, each offering unique food and drinks. Whether you fancy a taste of raspberry fudge or a glass of parsnip wine, the Rhubarb Festival has you covered.
Rhu-Bar tent? Demonstration marquee? If you're overwhelmed by all the stalls that have pooped up in the city this weekend, pick up one of these handy maps from the Bullring, or ask one of the festival stewards - they're dressed in purple, and easy to spot!
Most of the festival festivities can be found on the Cathedral precinct. The Rhu-Bar tent and Cookery demonstration marquee have been set up on the Bullring, and there are plenty of staff (all dressed in purple!) to help out if you get lost.
Local cook Tosin Dayo-Oyekole will also perform in the marquee on Sunday, beginning at 12.30pm.
Ruby Macintosh will perform in the Rhu-Bar tent from 12.15 to 1pm, followed by a series of acts supported by the Wakefield Music Collective.
