A TASTY event is set to return to town - bringing with it more than 80 producers.

Eat:Taunton, just one of the events in the busy schedule of duo Bev and Sarah Milner Simonds, is set to take place on Saturday, May 11.

Hammet Street and the area around St Mary Magdalene will be filled with a variety of different stalls.

The award-winning eat:Festivals hosts events around the county which are free to attend.

Organiser, Sarah Milner Simonds, said: "We are proud of the festival here in Taunton and think that the range of food and drink producers we attract to here is one of our best.

"This festival is very popular with or producers as the visitors are always so interested in the stories behind the produce. We have listened to feedback locally and are very pleased to be working with the church and Somerset West and Taunton council to bring a festive festival to the town on Saturday November 30."

The festival opens at 10am and runs until 5pm on Hammet Street and in and around St Mary Magdalene Church. Road closures and diversions will be in place from 7am to 7pm, including the closure of Whirligig car park.

The organisers have partnered with a local cycling group to offer incentives to cyclists to dust off their bikes and cycle into the festival. There is dedicated cycle parking in the heart of the festival and free saddle covers or rucksack covers for anyone riding in. There will also be free cycle check ups from Griffin Cycles to make sure you are riding safely.

The event is fully accessible and there are gluten free, vegan, vegetarian and dairy free options as well as smaller portions. The festival is also single-use plastic free and all food to go packaging is fully compostable.
