Plymouth Seafood Festival – Saturday 14 to Sunday 15 September 2019.
Seafood lovers are in for a treat this September, as Plymouth Seafood Festival returns for its 8th year to Plymouth Barbican Waterfront and Visit Sutton Harbour.
Funded through the Waterfront BID and its businesses, this free festival is a vibrant celebration of the incredible sustainably caught fresh fish and seafood on offer in Britain’s Ocean City and with fun and entertainment throughout the two days, there’s something for everyone.
Visitors will be able to watch as some of the region’s top chefs create spectacular dishes in the cookery theatre. They’ll be taking to the stage from 10am each day of the festival, cooking up delicious seafood dishes. There are also opportunities to watch the demonstrations from picking and dressing crab and filleting fish techniques, to the traditional craftsmanship with Lobster ‘Withy’ pot making, using willow.
Stalls will line Quay Square and The Parade, selling delicious fresh dishes to enjoy on the day, as well as some special treats to take away – you’ll find everything from street food and shellfish to cheeses, local gins and refreshing ciders. Discover the huge variety of different species of fish from our local waters, the Plymouth Trawler Agents will have many of these on display and are always happy to answer any questions you may have.
There is plenty for children to get involved in too, from competitions and craft activities to workshops with CATERed, who will be hosting their hugely popular Kids Kitchen, so children can get hands-on with making some tasty dishes, all for free.
