Abbfest returns to Fermoy's Garden Centre from the 21 to 23 of September to raise money for local charities and causes! Having raised over £220,000 since the festival started 14 years ago, 2018's line up looks to be bigger and better than ever!

Featuring over 200 ales all brewed in Devon, and 30 ciders available throughout the weekend, there is something for everyone. If beer or cider isn't your thing, head over to the wine, pimms and prosecco bar.

Over 50 local crafters, food producers and beverage creators will showcase their products in the food and craft marquee, a haven for Westcountry produce. Music from Riviera Dogs, Take a Chance On Us Abba Tribute, Go Tell Alice, Nick Fish, Ipplepens Unity Choir and more to create the ideal soundtrack to a family day out.

There will be plenty for children to do, with pottery, science and craft workshops, as well cookery workshops from Two Tarts Cookery School. Not forgetting a bouncy castle, face-painting, archery and a climbing wall!

IF this wasn't enough to keep every member of the family entertained, Abbfest's well-loved cookery demonstrations return with Darrin Hosgrove from Ashburton Cookery School, Sue Stoneman - South West's Home Cook of the Year, Dez Turland from The Brend Hotel Collection, and Stuart Crook who will be running Ready Steady Cook sessions! A tasty line-up of local street food will also be available to wash down those drinks, including Meat59, Lemon Jelli, Hog Roast, BBQ, The Teign Canteen and Chunk pies.

Free shuttle buses will be running courtesy of Grey Cars; please check the website nearer the time for a timetable and pick up points. Please go to the website to see all traders, the full music line up and FAQs about the event.
