As exceptional local growers, they will provide you with the tips and advice you need to create your own edible garden.

To help you get in the mood for the weeks ahead there will be cookery demonstrations taking place throughout the day with a holiday theme. Topics will include; coastal foraging, how to fillet a fish, how to pick a crab, cooking outdoors, the wonder food that is seaweed, how to pack a perfect picnic and some deliciously refreshing drink ideas.

Having sampled and bought some of the finest local food around make room for some outstanding street food delivered with enthusiasm and care. Prepare to be overwhelmed as you choose between; authentic Spanish paella, NiangsThai snacks, Sausage Fest, some lip smacking ribs from Ribstreet, Agnes Spencers legendary Jerk chicken or some mouth-watering vegetarian dishes from Minno Kitchen. You can wash your food down with some local rose petal wine from Fieldbar Wines, or some of Dick Willows’ award winning cider.  

With an exciting opportunity to make sandcastles, boats, flags, bunting, ice cream, and to take part in fishing games, the seaside holiday theme is guaranteed to keep your children happy. These fun and educational activities means that the whole family can take away something from this festival; whether cider for later, cheese for next week, a hamper for the next month, some inspiration for holiday food adventures or simply a very full tummy; you'll be sure to have relished this special day out.
