Whetting our appetites with Eat:Festivals

The Italian Gardens at Weston-super-Mare were bustling with socially distanced visitors to Eat:Weston at the end of September. As part of our support of the Eat:Festivals family, we’ve provided a bursary to six first time traders, who all made their debut at Weston. Encouraging entrepreneurial spirit is something we’re keen to support – and the quality and enthusiasm of the traders was amazing. We wish them all the very best of luck for their truly appetizing businesses.

“I only started my business venture in Lockdown and I’m looking forward to where this adventure will take me, starting with the Eat:Festival in Weston! I’m so happy to have been awarded the bursary and the opportunity to share my cakes with a wider audience.”

“This is a huge opportunity for us to learn from experienced hands in the industry, and will provide experience and publicity needed to develop the business. I can’t wait to provide an authentic Vietnamese experience! A huge thank you to Thatchers for giving us this support!”

“It’s incredible for us to have the chance to trade at Eat:Weston. We are so excited to meet other people working in the street food industry in the South West, and to be able bring our Kimchi and cheese toasties to the hungry masses. Being offered the Thatchers bursary has been a huge help to us as a small business just setting out on our journey.”

Eat:Weston is important to my fledgling business as it gives me a way to reach more customers with our pork scratchings and interact with them to tell them about our ethos and other projects here at Yellow Door Cottage. The Bursary from Thatchers is a major help.”
