Thousands of people ventured to Weston’s town centre on Saturday to sample delicious vegan dishes.
The team behind eat:Weston celebrated their first vegan food festival as more than 6,000 people visited the Winter Gardens Pavilion.
More than 60 producers, both newcomers and eat:Festival regulars, offered up their very best dishes.
The organisers also teamed up with Thatchers and The Wine Shop, in Winscombe, to offer a mini wine and tasting festival at Lasseter’s.
Co-organiser Bev Milner Simonds said: “We have always billed this festival as ‘an awesome food and drink festival which happened to be vegan’ and we think we delivered on that.
“By not having lobby groups or charities it meant those who wanted to know more about a plant-based diet can ask questions without being judged or scared off.”
