FEAST Weymouth 3rd October-30th November – celebrating dining out
Weymouth BID’s Business Plan aims to increase footfall out of season and FEAST Weymouth which will run from 3rd October to 30th November, is one way in which this is being delivered. Now in its third year, FEAST is growing from strength to strength and in 2016 the event is being extended to a two month celebration due to demand as well as including a NEW opening event. Organisers are looking for even more venues to participate in 2016.
A vibrant community dining festival, FEAST Weymouth is a celebration of local independent eateries and 2016 is set to be bigger and better than ever. Feast Weymouth is proudly supported and funded by Weymouth BID. This year’s event involves an exclusive array of restaurants, cafes, pubs and grills offering exclusive FEAST menus priced between £5 and £25.
Over 30 local businesses have shown an interest in this year’s event including Dorset Burger Company, The Stable, Restaurant 43 and The Ship Inn on Custom House Quay.
Paul Cocks, owner of Café Oasis, is participating again for the second time due to last year’s event doubling the venue’s evening turnover at a time of year that is usually flat.
He commented “I saw new faces that were from out of town and here for our FEAST menu. This is exactly what Weymouth needs.”
NEW to 2016 will be a one-day opening event with an open kitchen in Weymouth town centre where participating restaurants will be able to showcase some of their exclusive menu to tempt passers-by which take place on Saturday 1st October.
Sophie Kermani, Director at In the Bag PR, commented “I am so excited for this year’s FEAST event because we are making it much bigger and more focused. We have already have many venues contacting us to secure their place in the exclusive list of venues taking part. Don’t delay if you want to be involved in FEAST 2016”
