THOUSANDS headed to Bovey Tracey to sample a multitude of culinary delights in a celebration of food drink and entertainment.
Visitors were able to eat and drink their way around the world as the town’s renowned annual Nourish Festival took over the centre of the town last Saturday.
‘It was glorious sunny day, full of food, music and local trading for the 3,000 people who attended this year’s event,’ said Sarah James, the director of Nourish Festival
‘We were pretty much packed between 10am and four, with many producers, all of whom were local to the westcountry, selling out of produce.
‘It’s lovely to see the town so busy as highs treets are struggling, and Bovey is full of small independent shops.
‘I’ve had shopkeepers saying they’ve had a great day; all the producers were local to the South-West area’.
As well as the tasty temptations to tease gastronaut’s palates, visitors were able to eat and shop to the sounds of live music throughout the day, attend a meet the makers craft fair in the Methodist church hall and enjoy a mini gin festival too.
‘The gin is always popular, we put it at the top of the high street, so they go all the way to the top,’ added Sarah.
‘That seems to be all you need to do, lead a trail to gin!’
