Head to Tiverton Market on Saturday 2 June for an evening of streetfood, live music and entertainment!

Posted on: 24 May 2018

Tiverton’s Night Market, Electric Nights Streetfood, promises another evening of quality food and music talent.

Saturday 2 June’s event is themed ‘Magical Midsummer Blues’ and offers two magic shows for children (at 5.30 pm and 7.00 pm) as well as blues music. There are beer, cider and prosecco bars as well as sumptuous meals from food producers from across the South West including gourmet burgers, paella, pizza, a vegan stall, bbq grill and sweet treats.  This month the event welcomes new traders, including an Indonesian stall and Tiverton’s Waffles Taste Fantastic.

Minehead-based band, The Lodgers, will be headlining with their lively folky ‘Gypsy Blues’. Supporting acts include Jess Harvie and modern and traditional blues singer Jim Watts.  Tiverton Community Radio will be compéring the event throughout the evening and playing a selection of blues favourites between acts.

Event Coordinator, Zoë Lentell, said “These events are all about celebrating the local community and we were delighted with the volume of people who came and supported our May event. Feedback from visitors was fantastic and we welcome you all back to enjoy another evening of family fun and food in Tiverton’s town centre.”

Zoë added,  “There are opportunities for more community groups to get involved in the events. For example, we offer two free community pitches each month to local groups to promote their events and clubs.  We are also interested to hear from any local groups that might wish to perform a demonstration at one of our events.”

In addition to the food stalls, the event offers a range of craft stalls, including local art, woodwork, jewellery and other handcrafted goods. Plus there is a face-painter, bouncy castle and pebble painting for the children to enjoy.

Electric Nights Streetfood takes place on Saturday 2 June from 5pm to 9pm at Tiverton Pannier Market. The event is free entry.
