CAKE decorating, musical events and brewery tours are just some of the events that could return for the third annual Made in North Somerset event.

They were among the activities that visitors could attend last year as a celebration of the wonderful creative flair and local entrepreneurial talents that the region has to offer.

The three-week festival, organised by North Somerset Council’s economic development team, will take place between September 14 and October 6.

Businesses and organisations are now being asked to come forward and get involved.

Cllr Elfan Ap Rees, deputy leader of the council, said: “We know that people are increasingly looking for local, fresh and traceable products and we want to demonstrate through this festival that these items are already available on many people’s doorsteps.”
