The Exeter Festival of South West Food and Drink returns to Northernhay Gardens and Exeter Castle from Saturday, May 4 to Monday 6.

The foodie spectacular features live music, chef demonstrations, artisan produce, real ales and cider, family-friendly workshops and a chance to meet the producers behind some of the area's highest-quality products.

Festivities kick off at 6.30pm on Friday, May 3 with Exeter Beats: live bands, street-food, regional drinks and a lively atmosphere. Two further Exeter Beats events will light up the courtyard on Saturday and Sunday evenings. The daytime festival opens on Saturday May 4 at 10am and continues throughout the Bank Holiday weekend.

One new feature of the festival is the Exeter Live Better marquee, created in conjunction with Visit Exeter and Exeter City Council. This offers free demonstrations and talks on achieving a healthier and balanced lifestyle.
