An event for foodies and families alike will be held at The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth next weekend.

The Family Food Fair celebrates the valley’s vast food and drink scene and is said to have something for everyone.

There will be live cookery demonstrations and a selection of suppliers, offering delicious food and refreshments - this includes the Flaming Good Pizza Co, Good Game and The Posh Kebab Company.

Making up just some of the local food and drink producers will be County Cakes, The Wooden Fish, Hullabaloos Lemonade, Budleigh Bees, Branscombe Brewery and Louise’s Larder.

There will also be something for the younger visitors - the children’s zone - which will give the kids chance to create their own lunch. Entry to the zone costs £5 and children can choose between a mini pizza or a fish finger bap. They can also enjoy a fruit salad for dessert, decorate a donkey shaped biscuit and have their face painted.

Continuing the food theme, visitors can also have a go on the popular Human Fruit Machine while local band Vine and Dandy provides live music.

There will also be an opportunity for visitors to win a luxury hamper and other prizes in a raffle, plus there will be the chance to bid on some fabulous prizes in the food fair auction.
