The popular food festival, eat:Bedminster will return to the shopping district tomorrow (April 15) with more than 60 food and drink stalls set to take over East Street.

The event will begin from 10am - 4pm, to showcase the finest local produce as part of the eat:Festivals tour which stages more than 30 similar events across the region. Bedminster BID will help organise the festival to promote the area’s traders.

Bev Milner Simonds, founder of eat:Festivals said: “This is the second edition of eat:Bedminster and our partnership with Bedminster BID has given us the opportunity to grow the festival and keep shining a spotlight on the local businesses that are here all year round with food, drink and entertainment. We’re looking forward to helping the community discover producers and make connections–and hopefully turn them into new regular visitors.”

Due to its previous success, the festival will expand into Dean Street this year - making way for more producers and street entertainment, including family-friendly shows, art workshops, strolling entertainers and a folk-filled family show ‘The Oak, The Ash and The Standing Stones’ performed by Tidal Tales Collective CIC.

Simon Dicken, Chair of Bedminster BID said: “It is great to be able to give Bedminster a second edition of eat:Bedminster. Not only does it give support to local traders but we can shine a light on new businesses in the area. East Street will be buzzing with music, good food and independent traders on every corner.”

eat:Bedminster pledges to be fully accessible for all to attend, stating that the East Street market layout will ensure that buggies, pushchairs and wheelchair users can easily move through the outdoor space. The festival is free to attend and dog friendly

Because of the event, East Street will be closed to all traffic and parking and loading suspended between 7am - 7pm tomorrow between Canon Street and the junction with Dalby Avenue. Dean Street will be closed in its entirety and parking and loading suspended for the same time period as East Street.
