Topsham Food Festival

Topsham Food Festival
June 30th-July 1st, 2018
"Fire and Spice"

STOP PRESS 31/5/18 -- Some tables are still available for Nello's Longest. See Liz at Route 2 Cycles.

The 5th Nello’s Longest Table and Topsham Food Festival will take place on Sunday July 1. The theme for this year is “Fire and Spice”.  

 Once again some 350 tables will stretch edge-to-edge the length of Topsham Fore Street, around Topsham Quay, and down Ferry Road, past the Underway to the Passage Inn. 

For those who haven’t yet experienced the magic of Nello’s Longest Table, it is such a simple and wonderful community happening. Tables are ‘purchased’ and everyone brings your own feasts of local and locally sourced food and drink, as well as your own chairs. Some might choose to follow the ‘fire and spice’ theme in choice of food, or perhaps fancy dress.

Set-up on Sunday morning is a community effort that will hopefully go as smoothly and quickly as it has in previous years. A ‘table wave’ will start the proceedings off (usually at 5pm), and some 2000 of us will sit down all together at this one giant table to share and celebrate food, family, community and friendship: the important things in life. Afterwards, all hands to the deck again as tables are returned to designated areas, everyone takes away their rubbish, and by 10pm the town is just about back to normal. 

Proceeds from the weekend go to projects in our local community, promoting Topsham as a destination through Love Topsham, to Force cancer charity, and to the Brain Tumour Charity.

If you would like to be involved in this year’s activities, have new ideas to add to the weekend, and/or are available to help in any way, please let us know.

We hope to see you there!

Liz Hodges, Anna Bowen, Kim and Marc Millon
