eat:Yeovil 19 September 2020
This was a new host town for us in 2020 and our first joint event. We worked with Yeovil Town Council to increase the range of food and drink available at their annual Super Saturday event.
We used King George Street, High Street, Silver Street and Middle Street to host around 45 producers with lots of space for social distancing.
In the churchyard there was fairground rides and a cirus skill workshops for younger visitors.
All the producers and entertainment partners had completed their covid-19 risk assessments.
We are encoured you to walk, cycle or ride the bus into the festival.
We traded 10 - 4pm
