This Sunday 1st May promises to be a very exciting day for Salcombe. The town is playing host to its very first ‘Crab Fest’, a day-long extravaganza celebrating all things seafood and crustacean.

The event will be officially opened at 10am by legendary queen of cakes, Mary Berry, followed by cookery demonstrations given by Michelin starred chef Alex Aitken, Richard Hindson of the Victoria Inn, celebrated chef and food writer, Jane Baxter, and a raft of other local culinary experts ...

Organisers, the Rotary Club of Salcombe, and sponsors including SouthHams.com member, Favis, hope the day will be a great success to raise funds for charities including the Young Salcombe Centre. They are hoping money raised will contribute towards a safe and weatherproof playing area and needed maintenance.

Favis will be on hand to provide crab-picking tuition and crab shell painting which no doubt will be a firm favourite on the day. Favis' apprentice will also be demonstrating modern crab pot making alongside a member of the Shellfish Association who will show you how to make crab pots the traditional way.

Favis of Salcombe is an award-winning family firm which has been supplying crab since 1972 and prides itself on supplying the freshest crab and lobster from the seas around the South Devon coast. They ‘land, cook, hand-pick, pack and deliver to restaurants, chefs and individuals all over the country,’ they say.

In addition to seafood orientated activities, there will be music, wine tasting and more. Overall, there are expected to be over 40 exhibitors spreading out from Island Street across the town so, if you’re planning a day out this bank holiday Sunday, Salcombe should definitely be top of your list.
