What is it?
This year’s Clovelly Seaweed Festival is to be held on Devon Day, Sunday 4th June. The Seaweed Festival is a family friendly event, held in the harbour area, and was first launched in 2015 to help promote seaweed for its immense health and nutritional benefits.
On the day, quay kitchens will be showcasing a surprising variety of dishes, and stalls will be selling a range of seaweed products and seaweed arts and crafts.
There will be plenty of entertainment for both adults and children to enjoy, such as Know your Seaweed talks, craft activities and workshops, street entertainment and live music. The Seaweed Health Foundation will provide information on the benefits of seaweed for food and health, and Adam Reeve, a seaweed forager, will be holding a seaweed gel demonstration and talk.
Visitors are encouraged to bring their own seaweed along and ask the experts what the best use is for their particular selection.
The event will be raising money for the North Devon Hospice.
Clovelly in Devon is a unique village that was once owned by the Queen of England. From Elizabethan times until the present day it has been in private ownership, which has helped to preserve its original atmosphere. The coastal village has no vehicular traffic running through it, just quaint cobbled streets with donkeys and sledges. The village has a visitor centre, two hotels and two museums, and holds a number of quirky festivals throughout the year.
