On Saturday 9th September The Hub went along to the eats meets and streets event. This Boutique festival is in its third year now, and although the weather tried its best to threaten the event, it didn’t dampen the festival spirit .

Located in the field behind Marriage’s, it was a popular event with families and friends.

Around the edge of the field we were surrounded by food and drink trucks, not your normal festival fair, these eateries included Bubble Waffles, Caribbean, Vegan food and curries from Sudan, Ethiopia and East Africa and to wash that down you could take advantage of some great ciders, gins, lagers and prosecco

One of the main things that stood out was how the children were catered for. As you walk round you would see children playing boardgames that the festival had supplied, along with natures climbing frames, haystacks!

The music was a mixture of Old Skool, Dance and Ibiza classics not forgetting some reggae and soul. This was enjoyed by all ages and you often saw people having a little dance while queuing for food and drink

This will surely grow year to year and we look forward to attending it again in the future
