An award-winning food and drink festival is making a return to Portishead this weekend.
The eat:Portishead event, now in its fourth year, will set up around the town’s marina on Saturday, August 14 from 10am until 4pm.
The event will see a range of food and drink producers spread out across the marina in seven ‘zones’ from the lock gates to Parish Wharf Leisure Centre.

Alongside the plethora of local producers there will be DJs, street entertainers, buskers and children’s rides.
Festival director Sarah Milner Simonds said: “We love all our festivals but Portishead might just be our favourite.
“It’s such a magnificent setting and the visitors are always so friendly and welcoming. Last year‘s event was a challenge as it was our first event after the end of the lockdowns.
