Following yet another sell–out of stalls and produce last year, a number of independent businesses in Haverfordwest are continuing to recreate the Haverfoodfest on Saturday 6th May.

With last year having attracted more than 4,000 people, many stallholders will be returning for a third year – and many new ones will be joining them for their inaugural festival.

Taking place from 10am–6pm in the grounds of the Picton Centre and County Hall, the festival will feature an abundance of superb food and drinks stalls from the local area. Around 50 stalls will be under cover and a large outdoor area will play host to street food vendors, bars, a music and dance stage, and a dedicated children’s marquee.

The festival offers free onsite parking for the disabled and will include a free park & ride bus service, which will be travelling around the town every 20 minutes for shoppers and festival–goers alike.   The bus will run from 9.30am until 6pm, with pick ups and drop offs from the Pembrokeshire County Council Archives building in Prendergast, to the bus stop on Picton Place (opposite Iceland).

There will be several local chefs cooking in front of a live audience, including Lucy Kiff and Joanne Davies from the Young Farmers Club, both of whom are regular cooking competitors.  Towy Fishmonger will demonstrate how to fillet a fish with a chopstick as well as prepare a jumbo octopus.

The festival will play host to Vibe School of Dance, who will be performing in the music tent from at 11am, 1pm and 4pm on the day.

Also featuring on the music tent line–up will be Steve Bartram (11.30am), Happy Days Musical Cast (12pm), Matt Baker and Friends (12.30pm), Lucy Jones (1.30pm), The Jumping Flea’s Ukulele Group (2.10pm), Connor Adams and Jake Hicks (2.40pm), Rosey Cale (3.20pm), James Smiles (4.30pm), Man Vs Food (5pm), and Mike Jones (5.40pm).   Alongside this extensive array of musical talent, the ever–clever magician David Hitchcott will also be entertaining the crowds.
