eat:Festivals will be returning to Lyme Regis for the second year next month, celebrating the best in local and regional food and drink.
The multi-award-winning eat:Festivals are led by Bev and Sarah Milner Simonds – two women on a mission to reconnect residents with the productive landscape that surrounds them.
The not-for-profit social enterprise started in 2012 in their hometown of Burnham-on-Sea and has grown steadily, now hosting 23 events in Somerset, Devon, South Gloucestershire and Dorset each year.
They will be bringing their popular one-day festival back to Lyme Regis on Saturday, May 7, open from 10am to 4pm. The event will focus on producers based within a 30-mile radius of the town.
Bev and Sarah said: “The seafront at Lyme Regis is magnificent and is the perfect backdrop to showcase the micro and small producers from across the region.
“At all our events you can buy local food and drink direct from the producers in a safe, organised, outdoor environment. Fresh good food has never been so important for our health and the strength of our community.”
This is a free one-day event with approximately 60 regional food and drink producers along the seafront at Gun Cliff Walk and Theatre Square, alongside some free street entertainment and DJs.
Stalls will include a wide range of vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, alcohol free food and drink. The festival is designed to provide for all dietary choices.
eat:Lyme Regis will be a fully accessible festival and family-friendly – even the dog is welcome!
