Seafood Festival

 

Plymouth Seafood Festival is back for its seventh year and is set to bring The Barbican and Sutton Harbour alive with entertainment, activities and dishes to celebrate the city's fantastic caught seafood.

Well known regional chefs from some of the best restaurants in the South West, will be showing off their culinary skills in the special Cookery Theatre. Throughout the weekend visitors can sample the delights of everything from lobster to whelk, as well as learning some new cooking techniques, such as picking crab. Join in the fish auction of the day’s freshly caught catch; all contributions support the Fisherman’s Mission charity.

You will be spoilt for choice with the huge selection of delicious food stalls to enjoy, and CATERed will be entertaining the children with hands-on cookery fun and activities, where they can learn about local produce through touch and taste. 

Go aboard the fishing vessels and chat to the local fisherman about their fascinating and sometimes forbidding experiences out on the water

We are looking forward to welcoming the festival’s official resident artist, Debby Mason, who will have her fabulous artwork and products on display.

The Cardboard Boat Race returns to Commercial Wharf on Saturday 15 September, where you can build a boat out of nothing but a few bits of cardboard and some sticky tape, and sail it around a course in Plymouth harbour. The winner is the last one to sink! Teams can either opt into the pre-build option or build on the day.
