'Wivey' gets set to host its food festival
Wiveliscombe has always been a town famous for its breweries – it is also the place where Keith Floyd, one of the best-loved TV cooks ever to bless our screens, was born – so it seems right that the place should play host to a massive street festival.
Organisers of the 10 Parishes Festival Street Market which will be staged in "Wivey" in early September, are expecting several thousand people to attend the event.
Over 60 stalls will line West Street which will be closed to traffic: "There are lots of new arts and crafts stalls and we're quite foodie-orientated this year. We have all sorts of local producers taking part with everything from Moroccan wraps and Sushi to local ales and venison, preserves and confectionery to ice cream, cider and pizzas," said co-ordinator Linda Featherstone.
Local shops, cafes and pubs will join in with special festival openings and offers, and arts and crafts stalls plus community groups and charities will all also take part.
