Neath Food and Drink Festival Oct 4th & 5th 2013
Neath Food and Drink Festival was born in 2009 and has since established itself as one of the premiere events in the town's calendar. Over the past few years,
the festival has highlighted the variety of high quality Welsh produce that is available locally and focused on the range of products available from award winning suppliers in the Town’s Victorian Market and the surrounding area.
As well as the exhibiting stall holders, it is an excellent opportunity for the established town centre shops, restaurants and café’s to showcase their products to a wider audience.
The success of the the Neath Food and Drink Festival has been down to what Neath does best: public, private and voluntary organisations working together to deliver an event that demonstrated the quality of products and services that are available in the town.
The sun shone on the Saturday and the crowds came to make Neath shine in festive mood.
Food glorious food - and there is more on the slide show video below - enjoy!
