We are delighted to announce Seaham Food Festival will return on August 7th & 8th 2021. We have reviewed the Government roadmap on the easing of national restrictions carefully and are now making arrangements for the return of our food festivals to Seaham and Bishop Auckland.
As you might expect, these events may look and feel a little different this year to comply with public health guidance in place at the time. Keeping people safe is our top priority and we will provide more information about the measures we will put in place in Seaham shortly, as well as announcing the celebrity chef line-up and information about the traders and entertainment.
Initially, the council will be inviting traders that did not get an opportunity to trade at Seaham last year to reapply, before opening up the applications to other interested food and drink producers. All traders can now register their interest below
We will continue to review the government guidance and while we hope we can run the this year’s events with few alterations, we will put plans in place to keep our visitors, residents, traders, and staff, safe.
Our 2021 applications for trade are now open – please click the link below to apply.
We focus on producers from the North East, Cumbria and Yorkshire, but will consider traders from outside of these areas if their products are particularly unique, we like a great range of quality local producers to provide a fresh and new offering for our visitors.
