Street entertainers sought

eat:Nailsea food and drink festival returns to Nailsea this autumn - bringing more than 100 local food and drink producers to the Crown Glass Shopping Centre, High Street and in a newly expanded area down past the Link Road towards Tesco.

The 2022 dates are Saturdays, October 8 and December 3, both festivals run between 10am-4pm.

The twice a year festival, supported by Nailsea Town Council and North Somerset Council, are the biggest events in the town each year with the shopping centre and High Street filling with people from 10am enjoying the atmosphere and the great selection of produce on offer.

This includes farmers' market favourites alongside street food, artisan makers and entertainment.

Organiser Bev Milner Simonds said: "We love working in Nailsea and it is honour to be invited back again by the town council.

"By expanding the area this year we are staying to create a bit more elbow room and also create space for some new producers too.

"We will have music from our DJs and space for buskers too.

"If you are interested in busking - please drop us an email so we can plan that in.

"Big thank you to the town council for their support and local estate agents, Hunter Leahy for their support this year too.”

Co-organiser Sarah Milner Simonds explained how the new area will work

She said: “The newly expanded area won’t need an extra road closure.

"This means buses can still get through and residents and businesses access their properties at the rear, but the parking bays will be suspended for the day and stalls positioned in them, facing the pavements.”

computer techies for the online community


The TEK Hut was started by Ben Parker in the summer of 2018.

For 12 years Ben had been one of the team at The ICT Workshop which provided a wide variety of computer services to Nailsea, Clevedon, Yatton, Backwell and even Weston-Super-Mare. 

Ben felt it right to continue the same great service customers had previously experienced but under new branding for a new business and The Tek Hut was born.

​Trading at the familiar location in Nailsea, The Tek Hut will continue to offer the same cost effective, new laptops and PCs, upgrades, onsite support for homes and businesses through to a wide range of workshop services and accessories.
