Craft, Food and Drink Fair – A Taste of Torrington – Saturday 4th March 2023

The Town Council is excited to report that after the success of last year’s event, the Craft, Food and Drink Fair – A Taste of Torrington is happening again on Saturday March 4th.

The event has been commissioned to South West Event Management to organise and will see Great Torrington Town Hall, Pannier Market and Castle Hill Community Centre filled with lots of local traders’ craft, food and drink offerings from around Great Torrington and surrounding area.  The event last year brought a lot of visitors into the town and we hope that this year’s event will be equally successful and attract customers to the local shops, pubs and cafés as well as to the fair itself.  

As a taster, there will be offerings of watercolours, home-made candles, cakes, fudge, burgers, Indian cuisine, vegan offerings, stained glass, honey, candy floss, handmade soap, handmade baby clothes, vintage stoves, bags, handmade jewellery, locally produced cider, real ales, spirits, and cheeses with spaces for 70 traders! We are encouraging local charities to get in touch and take up the offer of a free charity space at the event. 

There will be a bar, serving local drinks and mulled wine.  Local shops and traders are being invited to offer special discounts/treats to shoppers on the day, any shops doing so, can contact Lucy to have the information shared on the event’s social media page. There will be activities for people of all ages throughout the town during the day. Some of the activities include taster therapy sessions, fitness activities, demonstrations, face painting, crazy golf and a bouncy castle. 

The Facebook event page is titled ‘A Taste of Torrington – sponsored by Great Torrington Town Council’, if you search for the page and give it a like you will be able to keep up to date with what is happening with the event and which businesses will be attending.

We hope this will be a great day with something for everyone and encourage all local people as well as visitors to pop into the town on the 4th March and pick up some local goodies.
