What's on: Fish. Fillet. Feast! festival - 18 June 2016

Fish. Fillet. Feast! is a brand new seafood festival held on the 18 June in the North York Moors, celebrating their tasty local produce.

A new festival is set to celebrate the rich fishing heritage of the North York Moors coast.

Fish. Fillet. Feast! is being held on Saturday 18 June at five different venues along a stretch of coastline within the North York Moors, enabling visitors to enjoy samples of locally-caught fish and a host of maritime-related entertainment as they venture to some of the area’s beauty spots.

The seaside resort of Saltburn together with the villages of Staithes, Runswick Bay, Sandsend and Robin Hood’s Bay are all joining in the day-long celebration.

Local fishermen and chefs will be showing visitors how to catch and prepare freshly-caught fish such as mackerel and cod before barbecuing and serving tastings to visitors.

A plethora of restaurants and cafés will also be creating and serving a special Fish. Fillet. Feast! dish to showcase the delicious bounty that is landed along North Yorkshire’s coastline.

The fish theme continues during the family-friendly celebration with artists and photographers exhibiting a range of arts and crafts that have been inspired by the coast, and street performers and musicians adding to the entertainment.

The day runs from 11am until 7pm and most of the events will be free of charge. Timings of events will vary and there will be different activities happening in each village.
