The next food and drink festival is on Saturday 28 September - we have pasted some information below but remember we are dog friendly, free and have a great beach to have a lark around on too!

The Burnham on Sea Food & Drink Festival returns on Saturday 28 September!

Once again, the Victoria Quarter of Burnham on Sea will be full of the best food and drink from across Somerset when the festival returns on Saturday 28 September. The festival spreads over five indoor venues and the large outdoor market on Victoria Street making a great day-out whatever the weather.

There will be over 70 stallholders from across Somerset all offering tastings, samples and opportunities to hear the stories behind the products.

Also on show at the KDS Demo Stage (Baptist Church) will be top chefs sharing their skills and techniques (including The Somerset Curry Club, Andre’s Bistro (Wells) and local chef Madeline Francis). 

The fantastic free to enter competitions are back too - The Great Burnham Bake, sponsored by Positive Wealth Creation, The Great Burnham Brew Off and the Great Burnham Burn Off - A chilli eating competition hosted by our good friends The Clifton Chilli Club.

The Great Burnham Bake Off will have 3 categories: “Cake, Any Cake” (open to home and professional bakers) and home baker only classes for Bread and Pie (Savoury). We are very pleased to have award winning pie maker Mervyn Watling of Wessex Pantry assisting with the judging. ‘Bake Off is in the Somerset Skills & Learning Centre.

The Great Burnham Brew off will be searching for the best home brew ale – just bring a bottle of your top tipple along to the Princess Theatre to be in with a chance of being crowned Champion Brewer.

The Great Burnham Burn Off will see competitors will go head-to-head to decide who can stand the heat and awarded the chilli-eating champion’s trophy. See this competition live on Victoria Street at 3.30pm

The festival offers a great opportunity to something new - there is certainly something for everyone with food as varied as Caribbean jerk chicken, deep south style pulled pork, wood fired pizza and more traditional pies, ales and cheese. 

Entry to the festival is FREE and venues open at 9am and include Somerset Skills & Learning, Baptist Church, Princess Theatre and Methodist Church.
