The Pontefract Liquorice Festival

On Sunday 8th July, Tangerine Confectionery Ltd sponsored the annual Liquorice Festival in Pontefract, the historical home of liquorice. The Tangerine stall featured classic liquorice sweets such as Pontefract Cakes and Barratt Liquorice Novelties as well as family favourites like Dip Dabs and our more recent range of Softies. As usual, the event was well attended by liquorice and sweet lovers from around the country, and the ongoing sunny weather meant that the festival was even more busy than usual! Office staff from a variety of teams within the business at Pontefract came together, helping to set up the stand and tell people about our fantastic range of confectionery.
