Bridgend Feastival

Taking place on Friday the 27th and Saturday the 28th of September (the same dates as our amazingly unique Elvis festival), Feastival will transform Bridgend centre into a hub of award-winning Welsh food and drink and top class entertainment.
The main reason for the festival is that we really wanted to showcase the true deliciousness of the food and drink on offer from local Welsh producers. Throughout the weekend some seriously good Welsh suppliers will be out and about showing off all the mouth watering food and drink they've got to offer. You might even be lucky to pick up a sample from the likes of The Chocolate Brownie Company, Nervous Nigel's Relishes, Riley's Toffees, the Delicious Cake Bakery and Welsh Perry and Cider, alongside a whole host of others.

And while we might be serious about local food, that doesn't mean we aren't planning loads of fun to go along with it. Wander the streets during the festival and you could encounter anything from 'leek lobbing' (get it in the basket to win a prize) to spaghetti bridge building!
All of this with perhaps the biggest single attraction right at the centre. Back in 2010 it was a 10ft Cauliflower sheep, 2011 witnessed the amazing leaning tower of Pizza, last year was a 6ft Orangutan swinging through the trees - you just wait until you see what we've got lined up for you this year! One small clue; it'll be made out of Welsh food packaging…

And with 'Make it' being a big theme this year, you can expect a load of recipes, cookery demos and even food art. If you can't wait for September, be sure to keep up to date with our blog, where we'll  post videos of our favourite cookery demonstrations as well as recipes from across Wales.
