The Nourish Festival took place last Saturday. Now in its sixth year, the streets of Bovey Tracey were overflowing with people trying foods and drinks from the many stands, where you could sample foods from not just the West Country but from around the world.

Musically the festival kicked off on the Friday evening with the Brodsky Quartet who played in the Parish Church, back for their fifth visit.

Some of the region’s best makers were at the Methodist Hall at a mini craft festival and at the top of the town outside the Dartmoor Whiskey Distillery, the third Nourish Gin Festival took place.

The day started at 10am but by 1pm one pie maker had sold out, Fore street and the Square were teeming with people going from one stall to another or sitting at the many tables set out eating, drinking and listening to a number of musical acts playing.

The Nourish Festival closed with the much admired British pianist Martin Roscoe.
