SCORES of people braved the wet weather and filled Burnham-on-Sea’s streets to buy local produce at eat:Burnham food festival.

On Saturday (October 26) around 100 local producers set up stalls and brought their best treats and drinks for event goers to taste and purchase.

The event, which was organised by eat:Festivals, was a huge success with live cooking demonstrations from Taunton chef Chrissie Godfrey, a printing workshop with Zara Emily as well as an outdoor market for visitors to buy a range of tasty food.

Buskers and entertainers were dotted around Burnham’s streets and visitors who cycled in on the day had the chance to get a free bike check from Griffens Cycles outside The Princess Theatre and Arts Centre.

The festival, which returned to the town for the 15th time, was single use plastic free and was spread over College Street, High Street, Victoria Street and Princess Street.

Bev Milner-Simonds, co-organiser of the event, said the event was a big success and thanked everyone who attended.

She said: “Thank you to all those who visited the festival despite what could’ve been quite troubling weather.

“Despite the Met Office doom and gloom forecast people certainly came and supported their local food and drink festival and local producers.

“We look forward to returning to Burnham on Sea on December 7 for our first festive festival”
