Made in North Somerset - a festival of local producers, artists and artisans
'Made in north somerset - a festival of local producers, artists and artisans'
The ‘Made in north somerset’ festival of local producers, artists and artisans is an annual event that takes places across North Somerset in the autumn. The event, co-ordinated by North Somerset Council, is designed to raise the profile of the area, support local businesses and celebrate the wonderful variety and quality of local food, drink, art and craft produced and created in North Somerset.
The event focuses on showcasing local North Somerset businesses who are committed to producing, growing, rearing, creating, making, using and sourcing locally.
Across the three-weeks the ‘Made in north somerset’ festival provides a unique opportunity to see a variety of food, drink, art, craft, theatre and music. There are many opportunities to see behind the scenes and appreciate what goes into making, creating, growing and producing some of these fantastic products. There are daily events across North Somerset including workshops, demonstrations, brewery tours, farm open days and walks, orchard open days, and tasting evenings.
