A long running food & drink festival which we inherited in 2016. It is held in the heart of this pretty market town at the foot of the Blackdown Hills. We use the main streets, this year due to the need to socially distance there will be a change to the layout with more spaces around stalls, queuing systems and a one-way system for pedestrians at the main junction.
We trade from 10am to 4pm
We have undertaken a review of operations and published our Covid Response Plan. All our producers have completed and implemented a covid risk assessment.
We provide an opportunity to buy produce from local producers in a well run, safe environment. There have been multiple recommendations and guidelines issued to change public behaviour. We aim to amplify these to demonstrate best practice and support locally led activities.
