The final day of the Exeter Food Festival saw thousands of foodies take over Northernhay Gardens and the Exeter Castle for Bank Holiday Monday. The rain clouds cleared for the festival's first ever Monday event and saw crowds basking in the sunshine while enjoying the very best local food and drink.

For the 14th year running, the Exeter Food Festival delivered a day of foodie festivities with live music,food and drink masterclasses and dishes from some of the region’s culinary elite. Visitors to the Dart’s Farm Teepees enjoyed curry and a pint with Boom Kitchen and Otter Brewery while others unlocked the secrets of the humble flapjack in the Westcountry Bakery.

Festival co-founder Michael Caines MBE, said, “This year’s Festival has been a fantastic event bringing together regional producers and chefs and celebrating the diverse produce we have on our doorsteps in the South West. Visitors have sampled and purchased products from over 90 producers, watched chef demonstrations and get involved with hands-on activities. We would like to thank all visitors and sponsors who make the Exeter Food Festival possible each year.”
