Meet the Lymington.com team this weekend at the Lymington Seafood Festival

Fingers crossed the weather stays mainly dry for this weekend's second annual Lymington Seafood Festival, with its fabulous line up of food, cookery demonstrations and talks, and live music all weekend.

Lots of local businesses for you to meet

Along with the food and drink stalls lining the perimeter of the Festival within Bath Road and Lymington River (what a fabulous setting!), many local businesses will be there to meet you.  They have all contributed to making the Festival possible so please do stop and have a chat with them whilst sampling the edible treats on offer.  

We will even be there ourselves - so here's your chance to meet us too!

Children's activities, giveaways and a chance to win a meal out

lymington.com on show at the 2018 Lymington Seafood FestivalWe'll be giving out Lymington.com flyers and old fashioned environnmentally friendly pencils.  To encourage even more people to sign up for the Weekly What's On newsletter there's now a quarterly draw for a meal for two at a local restaurant or pub.

We will also will have squash and activities for your small children and a bowl of water for your canine companions (on behalf of Oscar Pet Foods who are running the dog stations). 

So please come and say hello as you're passing by - we'll be on the right, close to the the main Bath Road entrance to the Fesitval approaching from the town.

Other very local businesses who will be exhibiting alongside all the food and drink stalls include a number of marine businesses  appropriately showcasing their wares on the riverside, and New Forest Cottages with a wonderful selection of places to stay in the New Forest, it's worth picking up their brochure for when you have too many friends wanting to come and stay!

Chef Talks and Cookery Demonstrations

The region’s leading chefs will be showing you their skills in the Festival's fabulous demo kitchen.  The Jetty’s Alex Aitken will be joined by 2016 Masterchef winner Jane Devonshire, Matt Tomkinson from the Montagu Arms Hotel and Chewton Glen’s Luke Matthews, plus see below!
