Spring Tide festival celebrates its tenth year

ONE of the most popular of Dorset’s many food festivals – and definitely the festival with the best location – Spring Tide celebrates its tenth anniversary this year at Hive Beach, Burton Bradstock, on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May, from 10am to 4pm.

The festival, on Dorset’s spectacular Jurassic coast, is a heavenly destination for foodies, with stalls featuring many of the county’s finest producers and growers.

The stalls include specialty meats, artisan bread and cheeses, handmade confectionary, mouth-watering cakes, and local wine, cider and beer. In the festival field there will be an eclectic mix of freshly cooked street food and crafts, along with family-friendly live music.

Proceeds of the event go towards the National Trust’s ongoing conservation work in Dorset.
