Feastival - home of the 10ft cauliflower sheep

Feastival Logo 1.jpegIt's not all about the Golf and the Ryder Cup in Wales at the moment.  This weekend also sees the fourth and final installment of our fantastic month of food festivals.

Abergavenny, St Fagans and Cardiff Castle's Cheese festival have been and gone with great success and so this week it's the turn of Bridgend to take centre stage.

But in area renowned for quirky events (Porthcawl Elvis Festival anyone?) this is no ordinary food festival.  The organisers have dubbed it Wales' Alternative Food Feastival (corny pun intended).

Feastival is a food festival with a difference.  As well as all the usual stalls and stands, markets and demonstrations, sounds and smells that you'll find at other food festivals there are also plenty of other slightly less conventional surprises waiting for you.  Amongst these are an artist carving weird and wonderful shapes out of fruit, the culmination of a 230 mile leek relay and bizarrely a 10ft cauliflower sheep.  It couldn't happen anywhere else!!!
