The sixth Nourish Festival will take place on Saturday 31st August when Bovey Tracey will be overflowing with food, music and craft events from 10 until 5. And Ebb Tides Seaweeds will be exhibiting with our local and exciting seaweeds
Our main street will be filled with great Westcountry food producers along with a mouth-watering selection of street food vendors – there’s no need to go hungry! So try our seaweeds.
A mini- craft festival featuring some of the region’s best makers will take place in the Methodist Hall just around the corner on Le Mollay-Littry Way. And – I almost forgot to mention – the third Nourish Gin Festival will take place in and around the Dartmoor Whisky Distillery at the top of town.
While you’re up there, you’ll surely want to check out how Devon’s first whisky is progressing, and also see how the Bovey Paradiso team are getting on with their plan to create a cinema just across the road.
Musically, the festival kicks off on the evening of Friday 30th August with the Brodsky Quartet in the Parish Church, back for their fifth visit to Bovey Tracey.
At lunchtime on the main festival day – Saturday 31st – check out the amazing Meridianum Ensemble at the Baptist Church. You will absolutely love this exciting fusion of folk musics from across Europe, played on an amazing variety of instruments.
Don’t forget you can sample our seaweeds at our stall.
And finally the festival’s closing concert on the evening of Saturday 31st August is one of the best-loved and most admired British pianists: Martin Roscoe.
Check out our new Oishii range with botanical and seaweeds so delicious.
Presenting the best new work from selected Members of Devon Guild of Craftsmen
The Summer Show is the longest running Devon Guild exhibition, launched in 1955 to celebrate the skills and original work from long-standing Guild Members through to the newest faces.
A key event in the Guild’s exhibition calendar, Members use the opportunity either to present a truly iconic piece of their work or to create something new and experimental.
It’s an opportunity for visitors to enjoy a wide variety of contemporary craft and for the Guild to showcase the outstanding talent of their membership. This eclectic exhibition covers a vast range of mediums, including ceramics, textiles and print.
Bovey Tracey’s festival Nourish, launched in 2014, celebrates the very best in food, craft and music. Building upon the success of The Contemporary Craft Festival, held every June, the team behind Nourish are keen to bring a new flavour to Bovey Tracey. Set in the heart of the town, Nourish is a weekend of events designed to feed the body, the mind and the senses.
Nourish is a community initiative led by The Contemporary Craft Festival, Devon Guild of Craftsmen and The Cheese Shed.
