Weston’s newest food festival is set to return next month, and the organisers have been busy securing a host of traders and cooking demonstrations as they look to co-ordinate the event in ‘record’ time.

Eat: Weston will return to High Street on September 16, replacing the Weston super Food Festival, which was cancelled back in June.

On the back of the success of Eat: Weston in April, organisers Beverley and Sarah Milner Simonds have taken on the challenge to work with North Somerset Council to provide an alternative.

More than 80 food and drink producers from in and around the county will showcase their produce at the festival and there will be live entertainment at the Italian Gardens.

There will also be a live cooking demonstration in the Sovereign Shopping Centre.

Sarah Milner Simonds said: “We are taking bookings from local food and drink producers are thrilled by the high level of response for this event.

“We are pleased to welcome back Belarus Tractors, alongside local farmers Levels Lamb with their sheep.

“We are also adding in a cookery demonstration stage which will be taken over by Steve Fowell, the head chef from Mendip Green Primary School, in Worle.

“There will be a free cookery school – which will be hosted by Idesign interiors – entertainment and music in the Italian Gardens from TRK Productions and The Imperial.”

Both Sarah and Beverley are calling on the people of Weston to express their ideas about what they want to see in High Street in September.

Beverley added: “We want to extend our thanks to Weston BID, North Somerset Council officers, the town council and local businesses.

“They have been so supportive as we try and pull this all together.

“It is on the back of the warm welcome and positive feedback we got in April which has given us the determination to create this festival in record time.”
