Bovey Tracey's festival Nourish, launched in 2014, celebrates the very best in food, craft and music. Building upon the success of The Contemporary Craft Festival, held every June, the team behind Nourish are keen to bring a new flavour to Bovey Tracey. Set in the heart of the town, Nourish is a weekend of events designed to feed the body, the mind and the senses. 

Nourish is a community initiative led by The Contemporary Craft Festival, Devon Guild of Craftsmen and The Cheese Shed.

Our main street will be filled with great Westcountry food producersalong with a mouth-watering selection of street food vendors - there's no need to go hungry! 

 A mini- craft festival featuring some of the region's best makers will take place in the Methodist Hall just around the corner on Le Mollay-Littry Way. And - I almost forgot to mention - the third Nourish Gin Festival will take place in and around the Dartmoor Whisky Distillery at the top of town. While you're up there, you'll surely want to check out how Devon's first whisky is progressing, and also see how the Bovey Paradiso team are getting on with their plan to create a cinema just across the road.

Musically, the festival kicks off on Friday evening with the Brodsky Quartet in the Parish Church, back for their fifth visit to Bovey Tracey. 

At lunchtime on the main festival day  check out the amazing Meridianum Ensemble at the Baptist Church. You will absolutely love this exciting fusion of folk musics from across Europe, played on an amazing variety of instruments.

And finally the festival's closing concert on Saturday Evening is one of the best-loved and most admired British pianists: Martin Roscoe.
