Weston-super-Mare’s town centre was filled with delicious treats and entertainment this weekend, as Eat: Weston returned for the second time.

A host of local producers from in and around Somerset showcased their delightful food and drink – but that was not all.

There was also a live cookery school in Grove Village and cookery demonstrations in the Sovereign Centre from school chef Steve Fowell.

Live music was played throughout the day to add to the atmosphere and the weather even managed to hold out – there was not a drop of rain to be seen.

And organisers Beverley and Sarah Milner Simonds have already set the date for the next event.
