‘A Taste of the Coast’ will be a celebration of local food producers and their products and will see a wide range of food and drink available, as well as lots of activities for a fun day out.
The Holderness Coast FLAG (Fisheries Local Action Group) are working with Sewerby Hall and Gardens to feature shellfish and seafood cookery demonstrations by Alison Johnson of the Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School, which will run throughout the day, together with other organisations promoting the local seafood industry.
An impressive total of 50 stalls at the Fair will include a medieval tavern with real ale; a range of smoked foods; artisan pork pies; homemade deli items; Greek street food; Yorkshire pudding wraps; a beekeeper and honey products; pizza and prosecco; Russian food; and a range of local seafood, including the Whitby scampi van, and a 16 foot pebble (fishing boat) and a stall. There will be a butcher, and a baker, selling burgers, sausages, bagels, and cup cakes, and there will also be a chocolatier and a range of coffees and teas for sale, plus a hog roast. In addition, visitors will be able to purchase preserves and pies.
The event will also feature a range of organisations such as Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, the RSPB, Holderness Fishing Industry Group , North Eastern Inshore Fisheries Conservation Authority and RNLI Bridlington, who will provide information on our living seas, sustainable fishing and conservation. Experts will be available throughout the day to answer questions on our sea life, which will be on display, including live local shellfish.
The event aims to raise awareness of the local fishing industry and its communities. It is part of the six-week summer activity programme at Sewerby Hall and Gardens, and the Food Festival Day will also feature a Rusticus adventure, ‘Wildlife Warning’; swing boats; donkey rides; music; and fruit kebabs in the zoo.
