Monday 28th March 10am-4pm


Feeling hungry?



On Easter Bank Holiday Monday, Wadebridge will play host to a Good Food Day, featuring many local and regional producers of quality food products.


The Wadebridge and District Chamber of Commerce has been working alongside organisers Ray and Mel Reynolds, who have run the Good Food Markets in Totnes and Plymouth for the past six years. They built the monthly Totnes event up to be the biggest in Devon, and won Devon Life’s Best Farmer’s Market award along the way.


On Monday 28th March from 10am-4pm there will be food and craft traders along Molesworth St, in the rotunda area outside the Co-op, and on the Piazza around J-Shoes, with local musicians adding to the ambience.


Chamber Chair Adrian Jones​ said: “we believe this will be a great success, and is a regular and valuable addition to the many existing events that promote the vitality of our town. It is part of Wadebridge’s growing appeal as a quality food and eating out destination.”


If you are a local food producer and would like to attend, please get in touch with Mel on 01803 445537.

Leopallooza Festival 2016




Leopallooza Festival in North Cornwall


29th - 31st Jul 2016

The Wyldes Week St Mary, near Bude, North Cornwall

Tickets for adults (with camping) from £95.00

The Leopallooza Festival is now one of the highlights of the Cornish summer and celebrates its 10th edition in 2016.

The festival has grown form a small party with a burning car to a popular, well-regarded new music festival (with a burning car) with 6 stages.

The festival remains faithful to its original principles 'to create and throw the greatest house party…in a field'

As well as home-grown talent, Leopallooza attracts bands and musicians from around the world, some who fly in specifically to play this one gig,

such is the growing, credible reputation of Leopallooza amongst burgeoning artists and reputable agents.

Artists booked to appear include:
Band of Skulls, Crystal Fighters, Kodaline, Loyle Carner, Pretty Vicious, Billie Marten, Louis Berry, Postaal, Will Joseph Cook, The Graveltones, Izzy Bizu, The Duke Spirit, The Hunna, Van Goffey, Scott Matthews, NZCA Lines, De Staat, The Sherlocks, Raglans, Lawrence Taylor and Otherkin

Leopallooza is a festival, held since 2006, which happens at Week St Mary, near Bude, in North Cornwall. This event is billed as a place where live music, tents, alcohol, good good people, sausages, sun, mud, burning cars, appreciation of the north Cornish nation, cider, neon, power riffs, straw, rain, rumours, fields and portable loos collide. The  centrepiece is a car, which is loaded with wood and set on fire. It has had different guises. It's been a Zebra and the General Lee. The festival site is built using reclaimed materials, wherever possible, making the handcrafted stages/bar/eatery unique and a welcome alternative to Formica and steel. A crew of friends dedicated to the local music scene help build and maintain the festival site year round. They design the leaflets, organise the marketing and sell the tickets. They even work on the night and forego the partying (at least until later on.)



Friday 29th July - 10am to 4pm -


The Ivor Potter Hall at the Parkhouse Centre, Bude.

Free Entry - Refreshments, including light lunches and cream teas, served all day.
To book tables telephone 01288 354866 - £10 for one or £15 for two - Set up from 8.30

The packed prize schedule includes cattle and sheep showing, produce, craft and cookery classes. There are competitive classes for children, local schools, WI and Young Farmers' Clubs.
