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 celebrate the wonderful variety and quality of local food, drink, art and craft produced and created in North Somerset.
The festival showcases 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 many unique opportunities to go behind the scenes and see just what goes into making, creating, growing and producing some of these fantastic products. There are daily events across North Somerset including cookery workshops, demonstrations, brewery and orchard tours, farm open days, apple pressing, wild foraging walks and tasting evenings. Businesses, many not normally open to the public are opening up their doors for you to see behind the scenes or running special events and taster sessions for the festival so do take advantage of this great opportunity to find out more about the businesses on your doorstep.
'Made in north somerset' annual market at Tyntesfield
Due to the success of our annual 'Made in north somerset' market we extended the event in 2013 to the whole weekend on Sat 5 & Sun 6 October. The market took place in the upper and lower courtyard at the beautiful National Trust Tyntesfield estate in Wraxall. To really make this an event all ages could enjoy there were childrens activities, kitchen garden tours, performances by local musicians and a 'Bake Off' competition in additon to the 42 North Somerset stallholders on each day. The programme provides a full listing of all the stallholders who participated.
