Taking place over three days, the festival not only includes mouthwatering delights but also street entertainment, cooking demonstrations from celebrity and local chefs, a bar, temporary allotments and a great atmosphere for everyone.
Now in its 13th year the festival is as strong as ever with even more traders offering a wide variety of top quality food and drink from across the South West.
The ever popular Cookery Theatre will be located under the Big Screen where chefs will share their tips of the trade and show you how to re-create some delicious dishes using products you can find at Flavour Fest. Ready, Steady, Cook will also being taking place at the Cookery Theatre where chefs and a special celebrity guest go head to head and battle it out in the kitchen to be crowned this years winner.
In the Place de Brest area there will be a bar providing a range of drinks from local ales, ciders and beers. There will also be a number of performances throughout the festival to entertain whilst you are enjoying a refreshing break.
This year there will also be a Grow, Cook, Share area on Guildhall Square, with a temporary allotment and marquee where you can pick up some really useful tips.
