Extra day added to TorqEat festival in May
Organisers of the TorqEat festival in South Devon have added an extra day to the 2014 event on the May bank holiday weekend.
The festival will take place on May 3 and 4 in Torquay’s Harbourside and Cary Gardens after last year’s one-day event attracted 5,000 visitors.
Bruce Cole, who is the award-winning head chef from The Moorland Garden Hotel, and Jean Philippe Bidart, the head chef at the multi-award winning Millbrook Inn at South Pool, will also be participating.
There will also be more than 40 local food and drink producers from across the Bay and the region, including Partridge Farm Meats, Lemon Jelli, Bays Brewery, Kenniford Farm, The Bloomberry Juice Company and new for 2014 St Ives Cider, The Big Pot Kitchen Company and Southwestern Distillery.
Torquay Town Centre BID manager Rachael Weaver said: “Last year’s TorqEat was a fantastic success, with a glamorous harbour setting, many food aromas and glorious sunshine.
“With lots of interesting foods to sample, cookery demonstrations and also entertainment it was a vibrant day.”
