Could you be the next big trader at Weston-super-Mare’s new food festival?

Weston’s brand new food festival, which is set to grace the town centre this April, has announced a host of new opportunities for traders of all ages.
Organisers Beverley and Sarah Milner Simonds are giving young people the opportunity to trade for free – and receive specialist training – as well as offering up some spots to first-time traders.
The young makers’ market will include a dozen start-up businesses which can trade for free and receive some much-needed advice.
The event – which will be in Weston’s high street on April 8 – will also include three trading stalls which have been allocated for free, thanks to a bursary for first-time traders.
Beverley and Sarah are also the brains behind the successful bi-annual Eat:Burnham festival and have seen the impact these free spots have on businesses in the area.
Berrow Beef And Lamb, based at Faircott Farm in Brent Road, won a coveted place at the festival in October and said they have had ‘huge success’ ever since.
Sarah Welland from Berrow Beef And Lamb said: “Being awarded a bursary to attend the festival was a massive boost for us.
“Due to the huge success it turned out to be we intend being at every future festival.”
Any young budding traders or first-time traders can apply for one of these coveted spots.
Both application forms are available from the Eat: Weston Facebook page, or by emailing Beverley and Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org
