FOOD fans will be making tracks to Llangefni as a brand new travelling food event rolls into town.

The Movable Feast will be visiting Anglesey tonight (Friday) as part of a brand new series of travelling food events in North Wales.

The first Movable Feast was held in Llandudno on April, 28 and attracted over 2,500 people.

The family-friendly event will travel to various locations in Conwy, Gwynedd and Anglesey over the summer.

The event in Llangefni will feature a pop-up food market, local food and drinks producers as well as arts and crafts, healthy eating and wellbeing activities, street performers and entertainment.

Anglesey band, Moniars, and Phil Gas a’r Band are among the acts to play on the music stage.

Over 50 stallholders will be at the event offering a chance for people to sample some of North West Wales’ best produce.

Among the stallholders who traded at the Llandudno Movable Feast was Wild Horse Brewing Company. Founder Dave Faragher said:

"This type of event is a fantastic opportunity for food and drink businesses like ours to meet customers face to face and collectively showcase the amazing offering we have here in North Wales.

“There's a real vibe in the region at the moment, and we really enjoyed being a part of the inaugural event. We look forward to taking our craft beers to other Movable Feast locations over the summer."

Organised by the newly formed North West Wales Food Group, The Movable Feast is the brainchild of some of the region's leading food businesses to give a platform to showcase the very best of local produce and promote the local tourism economy.

North West Wales Food Group administrator, Anna Openshaw, said: "Our first event in Llandudno was a real hit, which has given us a huge boost at the start of the season.

“We’re really grateful to everyone who contributed to making the inaugural Movable Feast such a success. We’ll have some equally fantastic stalls and activities in Llangefni and hope that people will come out once again to support the Movable Feast on its first visit to the island.”

The Movable Feast is based on the success of the 'Foodslam' concept on Anglesey and in parts of Gwynedd over the past two years, and has been set up to further promote North Wales produce across county and national boundaries.

Supported by the Welsh Government and the Isle of Anglesey, Gwynedd and Conwy County Councils, and Menter Môn, 12 dates have been confirmed for 2018 with the Feast visiting different North Wales locations throughout the year.

David Evans from Dylan's Restaurant, one of the founding members of the North West Wales Food Group, said: "Since we introduced the foodslams on Anglesey in 2016, they've gone from strength to strength with hundreds if not thousands attending each one, giving the local economy a welcome boost.

"This has given us the confidence to expand the concept and to put a region-wide, cross-county structure in place to oversee the running of similar food events across North Wales and beyond.

"In time, we want to hold events outside the area, and hope to take the Movable Feast to cities like Manchester, Liverpool and Dublin to promote our region as a top class food tourism destination.

He added: "We really want to involve the local community, and have been visiting local schools in the lead up to events to deliver cookery and art workshops. During these sessions the children have been designing festival flags which will be used to decorate the events.

The Movable Feast will be held at the Llangefni Town Hall car park between, 5-10pm, on Friday, May 11.

Tickets are £3.50 for adults, £2.50 concessions, children under 12 free.
