The Mercury reported last month how one of the most eagerly-awaited events in the town’s calendar has been scrapped.

But it has this week been confirmed that Eat: Weston – which made its debut in High Street back in April – will fill the void and host its second event of the year on September 16, which is the date the food festival had been scheduled for.

Beverley and Sarah Milner Simonds organised the event back in April and host similar festivals across Somerset.

Beverley told the Mercury: “The Eat: Weston team would like to thank Weston BID and North Somerset licensing for working so hard to help bring the idea to life.

“Weston has some phenomenal food producers and inspired people working flat-out to transform the local food landscape.”
