Abbfest Food and Beer Festival is now in its 8th season and just keeps on growing. It took place at Fermoys Garden Centre, Ipplepen on 24 26 Sept and over 6,000 visitors joined in with a whole weekend of local ales, ciders and over 70 local food producers.

Judi Spiers delighted the audience with her wit and humour and visitors enjoyed cookery demos from top local chefs including Chris Tanner from Tanners Plymouth, Ian Nixon from The Vanilla Pod at The Cridford Inn and chefs from Ashburton Cookery School.

Abbotskerswell had never seen a night like it when The Fab Beatles started to play on Saturday night, whipping the crowds into a frenzy of excitment as they joined in the words to all the Beatles classics.
Over 12,000 was raised for local charities which this year include Devon Air Ambulance, Children Hospise South West and local groups and clubs.
