Sunday visitors to this year’s Exeter Festival of South West Food & Drink soaked up the atmosphere in the Exeter Castle Courtyard with live bands and musicians playing throughout the day alongside street food stalls and local ales and ciders from the Festival Bar.


The brand new Exeter Live Better feature welcomed guests to the first ever Veg Adventure Lunch with Riverford Field Kitchen, a five course feast celebrating the finest seasonal veg grown in the Riverford Fields.


In Northernhay Gardens, visitors relaxed and enjoyed the region’s best food and drink and learnt about Charcuterie with Good Game and tips for summer Cocktails with Tarquin’s Gin and Luscombe Drinks in the Darts Farm Tipis, while future foodies got hands-on with cookery classes making oaty muffins and spiced swirls.


Top chefs cooked up a storm in the Cookery Theatre for Meat Up Sunday sponsored by Darts Farm with Tim Bouget from ODE Restaurant and Tom Williams-Hawkes from The Salutation Inn holding the audience spell bound.


Tonight, Nick Grimshaw (from BBC Radio 1), local band Pattern Pusher and DJ Freejak will be keeping crowds entertained at Exeter Beats. Tickets available on the gate.
