A celebration of everything from, on and in the sea

Embrace the community spirit with Sidmouth Sea Fest 2018

Here at The Victoria Hotel seafood has a strong influence on our menus, which is no surprise as we're based in beautiful Sidmouth where fresh sea food is readily available. Aside from offering us delicious fish dishes, the sea makes for a wonderful view and will always be a part of the Victoria experience. With a shared love for all things sea based, Sidmouth celebrates Sea Fest every year, incorporating everything to do with the sea. The town has a strong past of fishing as reflected in this wonderful day of food, dancing and live music. 

The 2018 event takes place on the 12th May at The Ham in Sidmouth. With themes of harnessing energy, sustainable energy, responsible tourism and community spirit, everyone is invited to get involved through creativity and fun. There's always an array of activities for the whole family alongside local food and drink stalls, plus cultural highlights that are free to enjoy. 

Highlights of Sea Fest 2018 are:

The Fish Kitchen & Prawn Cocktail Bar, consisting of delicious fish baps and tips on fish preparation and cooking.

Creativity on The Coast, such as face painting, storytelling and games.

The Sea Fest Cake Off competition.

A Coastal Community Zone showcasing fishing heritage skills, local groups, food, crafts, a raffle and Fish Sticker Trail.

The Main Marquee will host live music, choirs, dancing and more!

Whatever the weather, Sidmouth Sea Fest is a day that needs to be experienced to be believed! If you've already booked in for a stay with us over the 12th May, make sure you get involved. Or if you are looking for a reason to book a break, don't miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in local culture.
