Preparations are in full swing for one of our favourite (and most delicious!) summer events in Dorset; the Dorset Seafood Festival!

If spending a sunny afternoon sipping champagne and tasting some of the Dorset’s freshest and finest seafood, all against the idyllic backdrop of Weymouth’s historic harbour, sounds like your idea of heaven, this is the festival for you!

The event will take place around Weymouth harbour on the 9th and 10th of July and raises money for the Fisherman’s Mission charity, as well as aiming to raise awareness for sustainable fishing and providing  visitors with the chance to explore and learn more about the journey seafood takes from sea to plate.

Highlights from this years’ festival include live cooking demonstrations, lessons on filleting fish like a pro, fresh oysters and champagne as well as nearly 100 stalls selling a vast range of seafood dishes, varying from fresh and simple dishes to exotic, unusual delights. Visit the Dorset Seafood Festival website for more information about this years’ festival.
