A celebration of local food and drink is taking place in Budleigh Salterton this autumn.
The inaugural Budleigh Salterton Food and Drink Festival is set to take place from Friday, October 11, until Sunday, October 13.
The festival is an initiative of business networking consortium Budleigh in Business and organised by Simon Blissett who runs the fish and chip shop.
It follows on from the success of Active Budleigh which celebrated all the activities that are available in and around the town.
The event is designed to showcase locally sourced food and drink on offer in the town. It will include cooking demonstrations, a beer festival and food stalls. And the Budleigh Kitchen will also be taken over by businesses to offer their dishes.
There will also be family entertainment including face painting, balloon sculpture and live music in the evenings.
The event will also see the launch of a Budleigh Buy Local campaign, along with a support package for local retailers, businesses and producers, which is designed to raise awareness of local businesses and encourage the public to use them.
