THE countdown has begun for this year's eat:Portishead festival.

110 local food and drink producers will set up stalls alongside the marina spanning from the Parish Wharf Leisure Centre all the way down to the dock gates.

This acts as a great opportunity to try out local products and discover new favourites.

There will also be entertainment, meaning fun for all the family. This includes Punch and Judy shows, DJ's, and strolling entertainers.

Head of Sparkle, Sarah Milner Simonds, said: "The Portishead venue is an amazing backdrop for the festival and this festival is deservedly award-winning.

"Stretching all along the marina, there is lots of break-out spaces for picnics and relaxing.

"The local residents are so friendly and welcoming - it is a real pleasure working here."

eat:Portishead will run between 10am and 4pm and is free to attend.
