Take one West Dorset seaside village on the World Heritage Site Jurassic Coast; combine with an eclectic mix of local food and drink, an exciting array of local producers, artisans and crafts...and what have you got?...the Spring Tide Festival 2016 of course! Back for its 7th sensational year!
This fantastic National Trust West Dorset event is confirmed for Saturday 21 & Sunday 22 May 2016 so we hope you'll save the date and join us at Hive Beach, Burton Bradstock from 10am-4pm.
There’ll be lots going on over the weekend to see and enjoy, with a strong community emphasis that will offer an opportunity to discover and meet local food producers who will temp and tantalise you to try & buy.
With over 60 stallholders attending, including some new 'foodies' on the block, we'll bring together and showcase some of the best food and drink from across the county featuring an all-star line-up of locally made artisan bread, jams, chutneys, tea, coffee, beer, cider, cheese, cakes, pies, confectionary, charcuterie, meat and veg. There’ll be a good selection of local art & craft as well as music and entertainment. We’ll confirm the full programme in the weeks and months ahead.
NT’s Outdoor Experience Ranger Sarah Kennedy said “many of the producers and stall holders have been with us since our first event back in 2010, so we’re delighted to welcome them back. We really pleased that a few of our tenants participate too. Its great to showcase thier businesses".
Spring Tide festival volunteer coordinator Caz Richards said "We'll be tempting visitors to a fusion of local seasonal foods from award winning pies, cheese and ciders to the indulgent naughty but nice sweet treats! Along with the regulars we’ve had a lot of interest from new producers and local foodies, who have heard about us and want to take part. It’s great to be able to give then a helping hand”.
Watch this space as we confirm more stallholders in the coming weeks.
