Calling All Foodies: sign up for Best of Bay Food Fayre

Morecambe Bay is calling on all quality food producers, traders and kitchens to join in the ‘Best of Bay Food Fayre’ taking place at Morecambe Seaside Festival this year, entirely free of charge.

Taking place on  31st August and 1st September, the Food Fayre will feature as one of the many free attractions for the Seaside Festival.

This year, the Seaside Festival promises to offer an even bigger programme of events, with the Food Fayre a new addition to the other annual features, which is entirely free for traders to attend.

“A Bay Food Festival has previously been acknowledged as a shared idea and ambition of stakeholders and partners in the Lancaster District and Morecambe Bay Area," enthuses Councillor Ron Sands, Lancaster City Council's Cabinet member with responsibility for tourism.

“The Council is keen to see such an event unfold in the future, and in the spirit of such future possibilities, is hosting the ‘Best of Bay Food Fayre’ to celebrate the variety and quality of local food produce available, offering a fantastic free trading opportunity for quality-led Bay food businesses.”

The fayre will be held opposite the Winter Gardens on the Bay Arena car park.

Lancaster City Council is inviting producers and traders from around the Bay to register their interest at www.lancaster.gov.uk/bestofbay.

Producers, traders and kitchens are also invited to feature in a programme of talks and demonstrations on the subject of local Bay produce, presenting a free sponsorship opportunity for those involved.
