Celebrating everything in, on and from the sea

Celebrating everything in, on and from the sea; Sidmouth Sea Fest 2018

Seafood has a strong influence on our menus here at The Belmont, and how could it not when we're based in beautiful Sidmouth where fresh sea food is readily available. The sea shapes our dishes, makes for a wonderful view and will always be a part of the Belmont experience. Just like us, Sidmouth locals love being based at the waters edge and every year Sea Fest is a celebration of everything to do with the sea. The town has a strong past of fishing as reflected in this day of food, dancing and live music. 

In 2018 the event will take place on the 12th May at The Ham in Sidmouth. The coastal celebrations are focused on the themes of harnessing energy, sustainable energy, responsible tourism and community spirit though creativity and fun. There's always activities for the whole family, local food and drink stalls and cultural highlights that are all free to enjoy. 

Highlights of Sea Fest 2018 include:

The Fish Kitchen & Prawn Cocktail Bar, consisting of delicious fish baps and tips on fish preparation and cooking.

Creativity on The Coast, such as face painting, storytelling and games.

The Sea Fest Cake Off competition.

A Coastal Community Zone showcasing fishing heritage skills, local groups, food, crafts, a raffle and Fish Sticker Trail.

The Main Marquee will host live music, choirs, dancing and more!

Sidmouth Sea Fest is a day that needs to be experienced to be believed, whatever the weather! So whether you're already booked in for a stay with us over the 12th May, or are looking for a reason to book a break, don't miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in local culture.
